Watch Oscar-nominated doc “Hollywood on Trial”

Hollywood on Trial

This 1976 documentary went on to be nominated for an Academy Award for its efforts to examine the 1947 hearings of the House Un-American Activities Committee and its aftermath. Through interviews with key figures, archival footage and narration by John Huston, Hollywood on Trial chronicles the creation of the Hollywood blacklist, which prevented many screenwriters, directors, actors and others from getting work in Hollywood after being accused of harboring Communist views. Careers and lives having been ruined, this film surveys the damage and takes stock on the motivations behind this awful episode in Hollywood’s history.

Tune in to TUTV on Thursday, June 27 at 1 and 9 p.m. to see this feature length documentary film.
