Inside Out: A Memoir of the Blacklist


Author Walter Bernstein was blacklisted during the McCarthy era of the 1950s. With the perspective and insight afforded by the passage of fifty years, the author vividly recalls an entertainment community torn between those who were willing, and those who refused, to denounce their friends, and he provides unforgettable glimpses of leading Hollywood figures such as Burt Lancaster, Elia Kazan, Bette Davis, and Zero Mostel. (2000 edition, paperback)
