Monday, March 19, 2018 at 7:00pm
The Cinema Lounge meets Monday, March 19, 2018 at 7:00pm. Our topic is "High Noon and the Hollywood Blacklist: A Conversation with Glenn Frankel."
High Noon was a box-office and critical success, and is now universally recognized as a classic. The film was made during the Hollywood blacklist, a time of political inquisition and personal betrayal. Screenwriter Carl Foreman was called to testify about his former
membership in the Communist Party, facing the painful dilemma – will he name names or sacrifice his brilliant career?
Glenn Frankel's book, High Noon: The Hollywood Blacklist and the Making of an American Classic, tells the story of the making of a great American Western, set against the backdrop of a turbulent political era whose lessons resonate in our own troubled time.
