Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. As part of its effort to rid the nation of Communist influence and infiltration, the House Un-American Activities Committee subpoenaed hundreds of actors, screenwriters, producers, and directors with suspected Red leanings in 1947. Some of these film industry veterans, including screenwriter Paul Jarrico (1915-1997), refused to testify on Capitol Hill and were denied subsequent employment. In The Marxist and the Movies , Larry Ceplair illuminates the life, career, and political activism of Jarrico, the recipient of an Oscar nomination for his screenplay for Tom, Dick, and Harry (1941) and the producer of the only film ever blacklisted, The Salt of the Earth (1954). Although the story of the Hollywood Ten has been told, The Marxist and the Movies is a unique look at Communist activities during this seminal period in American history. Ceplair recounts Jarrico s struggles against both personal demons and the prevailing power structures of his era. Through firsthand accounts from Jarrico himself and interviews with those closest to him, as well as congressional records and statements from those on both sides of the Red Scare, Ceplair provides an intimate view of Paul Jarrico s life, set in historical and cultural context.

Synopsis : As part of its effort to rid the nation of Communist influence and infiltration, the House Un-American Activities Committee subpoenaed hundreds of actors, screenwriters, producers, and directors with suspected "Red" leanings in 1947. Some of these film industry veterans, including screenwriter Paul Jarrico (1915-1997), refused to testify on Capitol Hill and were denied subsequent employment. In "The Marxist and the Movies", Larry Ceplair illuminates the life, career, and political activism of Jarrico, the recipient of an Oscar nomination for his screenplay for "Tom, Dick, and Harry" (1941) and the producer of the only film ever blacklisted, "The Salt of the Earth" (1954). Although the story of the Hollywood Ten has been told, "The Marxist and the Movies" is a unique look at Communist activities during this seminal period in American history. Ceplair recounts Jarrico's struggles against both personal demons and the prevailing power structures of his era. Through firsthand accounts from Jarrico himself and interviews with those closest to him, as well as congressional records and statements from those on both sides of the Red Scare, Ceplair provides an intimate view of Paul Jarrico's life, set in historical and cultural context.

Critique: "[This book] is a very capable introduction not only to Jarrico's life, but to the wider story of film and politics in the era of the blacklist." -- "David J. Snyder, "The Journal of American History""
