In 1953, Academy Award-nominated actress Lee Grant was on the threshold of a great career when she was called before the House Committee on Un-American Activities to testify against her husband, director Arnold Manoff. When she refused to answer their questions, she, like her husband, was blacklisted. After twelve years "quarantine", she returned both as an Oscar-winning actress and as a director. In fact, she was the only Hollywood actress of her era to become a successful director. In this unconventional Tinsel Town memoir, she writes forthrightly about her triumphs, her experience, and her losses.
