The directing debut of producer Irwin Winkler which sanitised the blacklisting story by altering blacklisted Abraham Polonsky’s screenplay and neutralising the central character’s politics. For a better account of the period try The Front, written by Walter Bernstein and directed by Martin Ritt and starring (Ripley here) Woody Allen as the schmuck who allows a blacklistee to see scripts using him as … the front. In the meantime, this is carried principally by its starry cast.
