TOPIC: 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.

Daniel Vovak, 1972-2011.
