Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Buhle and Wagner (Radical Hollywood: The Untold Story Behind America's Favorite Movies) are no strangers to the field of leftist Hollywood history. Their new work annotates those films written, directed, or produced-all or in part-by victims of the Hollywood blacklist of the 1950s. Arranged alphabetically, the 1052 entries cover films from the 1930s to the present, e.g., Abbott and Costello Meet Captain Kidd, Roman Holiday, and Bridge on the River Kwai. Unfortunately, there are no separate entries for the Hollywood Ten, the Hollywood Nineteen, members of the House Un-American Activities Committee, organizations, or concepts, and without such entries, readers get no sense of the issues involved or the people caught up in both sides of the blacklist. Some entries include production and cast information in addition to film synopses and critiques, but most only reference the blacklisted individual and briefly note the film's plot. Although the authors drew the bulk of their information from two authoritative resources-IMDB.com and the AFI catalogs of feature films for 1893-1950 and 1961-70-mistakes still crop up (e.g., referring to Michael Caine's role in Zulu as his debut, although he had appeared, mostly uncredited, in over a dozen earlier films). Useful primarily as a guide to all films associated with blacklisted individuals, this should be used in conjunction with the authors' Hide in Plain Sight: The Hollywood Blacklistees in Film and Television, 1950-2002. For comprehensive film collections.-Anthony J. Adam, Prairie View A&M Univ. Lib., TX Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    Blacklisted fails to check facts

    I snapped this book up the minute I saw it since the blacklist, film noir and the American left are my specialties. I had some qualms given the poorly researched plots and cast lists in Buhle and Wagner's 'Radical Hollywood' but I couldn't resist the book given the subject matter. Unfortunately, as in the earlier work, they frequently jumble casts and plots. Example(s): In BIG KNIFE Jack Palance's character is an ACTOR not a writer. In 'TOMORROW IS FOREVER' Orson Welles' adopted daughter was the 6 year old Natalie Wood, not the 50-something dowager Lucille Watson. There are lots of egregious and inexcusable flubs like this, but it is still a handy guide for film titles and some interesting facts on the blacklist years.
