Trumbo: A Biography of the Oscar-Winning Screen...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

A central figure in the Hollywood Ten and one of the most successful screenwriters in Hollywood history, two of Trumbo's screenplays earned Oscars (Roman Holiday and The Brave Ones) while he was blacklisted and unable to receive public credit for his work. Trumbo was also the author of Johnny Got His Gun, winner of the National Book Award and one of the most powerful antiwar novels ever published. He epitomized the spirit of American capitalism, yet he went to jail refusing to talk about his membership in the Communist party. As a result of his relentless fight for political freedom and the right to work for those blacklisted by the House Un-American Activities Committee beginning in 1947, he ended the blacklist era in 1960 by earning proper screen credit for his work on the blockbuster films Exodus and Spartacus. An extraordinarily complex character, he was, as author Bruce Cook states, "an exemplar of a certain set of American virtues: toughness, independence and persistence". Dalton Trumbo was the central figure in the Hollywood Ten, the blacklisted and jailed screenwriters. One of several hundred writers, directors, producers and actors who were deprived of the opportunity to work in the motion picture industry from 1947 to 1960, he was the first to see his name on the screen again. When that happened, it was Exodus, one of the year's biggest movies. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Luke Daniels. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/high/000984/bk_high_000984_sample.mp3.

Listen to six half-hour dramas about one of the darkest periods for the First Amendment in American history: the Hollywood blacklist. From 1947 until his death in 1962, screenwriter Gordon Kahn, father of series producer Tony Kahn, was the target of harassment by the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), denunciations by neighbors and "friends," and surveillance by the FBI and its chief, J. Edgar Hoover. Kahn could have ended the ordeal by renouncing his leftist views and giving the investigators the names of others to be questioned. Blacklisted tells the story of Gordon Kahn's 15 years of persecution and the fear that followed him, his family, and thousands of other Americans for having - or being accused of having - "the wrong political ideas."All of Kahn's words, and those of his wife Barbara, are drawn from their writings, diaries, and letters. All of Hoover's remarks come from the confidential memos and remarks in the 3,000-page surveillance file he kept on Gordon Kahn from 1944-1962. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tony Kahn, Rob Leibman, Stockard Channing, Carrol O'Connor. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/rt/kahn/000001a/rt_kahn_000001a_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Improvising Out Loud: My Life Teaching Hollywoo...

Jeff Corey (1914-2002) made a name for himself in the 1940s as a character actor in films like Superman and the Mole Men (1951), Joan of Arc (1948), and The Killers (1946). Everything changed in 1951, when he was summoned before the House Un-American Activities Committee. Corey refused to name names and was promptly blacklisted, which forced him to walk away from a vibrant livelihood as an actor and embark on a career as one of the industry's most revered acting instructors. In Improvising Out Loud: My Life Teaching Hollywood How to Act, Corey recounts his extraordinary story. Among the actors who would soon fill his classes were James Dean, Kirk Douglas, Jane Fonda, Rob Reiner, Jack Nicholson, and Leonard Nimoy. In 1962, when the blacklist ended, Corey was one of the industry's first trailblazers to seamlessly reboot his acting career and secure roles in some of the classic films of the era, including Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969), True Grit (1969), and Little Big Man (1970), in which he starred as the infamous Wild Bill Hickok. His memoir, which he wrote with his daughter Emily Corey, provides a unique and personal perspective on the man whose teaching inspired some of Hollywood's biggest names to star in the roles that made them famous. The book is published by The University Press of Kentucky. The audiobook is published by University Press Audiobooks. "Jeff Corey - actor, teacher, patriot! Would that my generation had such an inspiring and honest advocate." (Martin Sheen) "A classic, epic book…I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in Hollywood, the theater, acting, or life itself." (Robert Morse) "An absorbing chronicle of a noted actor, Blacklist survivor, and acting teacher for an impressive array of up-and-coming stars." (YES! Weekly) 1. Language: English.

High Noon: The Hollywood Blacklist and the Maki...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

It's one of the most revered movies of Hollywood's golden era. Starring screen legend Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly in her first significant film role, High Noon was shot on a lean budget over just 32 days but achieved instant box-office and critical success. It won four Academy Awards in 1953, including a best actor win for Cooper. And it became a cultural touchstone, often cited by politicians as a favourite film, celebrating moral fortitude. Yet what has been often overlooked is that High Noon was made during the height of the Hollywood blacklist, a time of political inquisition and personal betrayal. In the middle of the film shoot, screenwriter Carl Foreman was forced to testify before the House Committee on Un-American Activities about his former membership in the Communist Party. Refusing to name names, he was eventually blacklisted and fled the United States. (His coauthored screenplay for another classic, The Bridge on the River Kwai, went uncredited in 1957.) Examined in light of Foreman's testimony, High Noon's emphasis on courage and loyalty takes on deeper meaning and importance. In this book, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Frankel tells the story of the making of a great American Western, exploring how Carl Foreman's concept of High Noon evolved from idea to first draft to final script, taking on allegorical weight. Both the classic film and its turbulent political times emerge newly illuminated. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Allan Robertson.
