Summary
This is the story of how the politicians took Tinseltown to task in the late 1940s and 1950s. As the Cold War began in earnest, the search for 'Reds under the bed', later led by Senator Joseph McCarthy, was felt most keenly in Hollywood where the investigations were carried out under the full glare of the flashlights
