More than sixty years ago, McCarthyism silenced Hollywood. In the pages of Tender Comrades, those who were suppressed, whose lives and careers were ruined, finally have their say. A unique collection of profiles in cinematic courage, this extraordinary oral history brings to light the voices of thirty-six blacklist survivors (including two members of the Hollywood Ten), seminal directors of film noir and other genres, starring actresses and memorable supporting players, top screenwriters, and many less known to the public, who are rescued from obscurity by the stories they offer here that, beyond politics, open a rich window into moviemaking during the Golden Age of Hollywood.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is not the usual book of remembrances-nostalgic, bittersweet, and all that. This is chapter-and-verse recall of our country's most shameful epoch. . . . It is eloquent and revelatory, but most of all, it is a cautionary tale." -Studs Terkel


"An acute portrait of that squalid time when the witch-hunt was on in Hollywood." -Norman Mailer
