Film 2700: The Hollywood Blacklist and ‘High Noon’

Hi Class,

Later this semester we will be discussing the House Unamerican Activities Committee’s (HUAC) investigation of the film industry and its consequences. This radio piece, from NPR’s Fresh Air, provides an interesting overview of the era and how the HUAC’s campaign influenced the Western classic High Noon. I encourage you to check it out if you have a minute.
