Reality of the 'Red Scare'

April 06, 1991

Peter Rainer's March 15 review of "Guilty by Suspicion" indicates he made no effort to determine the facts of the period referred to in the movie. That is curious inasmuch as the truth is contained in a series of articles in The Times' morgue.

The facts are that there was indeed an organized, funded and executed effort to infiltrate the Screen Actors Guild and the movie industry and to use these for Soviet and communist propaganda.

Do you suppose there ever will be a movie detailing what actually happened? Or will there only be such propaganda efforts as "Guilty by Suspicion" and the various productions seen on public TV?
