The years 1947 and 1948 was a rough patch for Hollywood - and journalist James Felton did a favor for all those geeky film historians yet unborn for documenting their myriad travails in the attached article.

Aside from a major drop in box-office receipts, the most time consuming inconvenience involved U.S. Representative J. Parnell Thomas (1895 1970) and his cursed House Committee on Un-American Activities (HUAC) that threatened to reduce their profits to a further degree:

"When the hearings opened in Washington last year, the producers made a brave show at first, but it was soon evident that they were full, not of strength, but fear. They feared censorship; they feared Fascism and a resultant anti-Semitic wave. So they opposed Thomas for a while, and defended their writers and directors. But both fears were soon subordinated to the fear of financial loss."
