AMC should pull this print from their vault.

This documentary narrated by Alec Baldwin is shown as created in 1995 and is 59 minutes. Although many of the newsreel clips have been seen before, the interviews with stars of the period like Marsha Hunt must be seen to see how witch hunts against sympathizers not members of the Communist party were shunned from working in their profession and shunted in their private lives.

It is an important film documentary because it can be related to life in the United States today. Alleged loyal Americans expressed their beliefs against members of their unions that threatened their potential rise to power in the film industry.

Today, any American that may question this nation's posture towards despotic governments with which it does not agree are automatically tarred with the same brush and innocents are treated like Salem witches.

It is important as well, because there is another film, Hollywood On Trial narrated by John Huston which apparently has received more air time. People can only get a passing view of the witch hunt and subsequent McCarthy hearings in "Good Night and Good Luck".

The viewing public of ages 12-30 can only remember, from the film libraries, "All the President's Men". It is incumbent upon the library networks and History Channel to enlighten all Americans about the dangers of hate mongering.

We who are Americans believe that Americans are innocent until proved guilty.
