Synopsis: The story of the battle to form the Screen Writersâ Guild is for the first time told fully and in riveting detail, based on diaries, letters, newspaper clippings, pamphlets, and hundreds of interviews with Hollywood people. Brilliantly recreated is the political turmoil that shattered the Hollywood community through the 1930â s and into the 40â sâ leading to House Un-American Activity Committee and the blacklist.

â Hollywood of that era has a narcotic fascination for many of us. The book is crammed with compelling movieland figuresâ ¦.The riches Nancy Lynn Schwartz unearthed deserved our attention.â
â J. Anthony Lukas, The New York Times Book Review

About the Author: Nancy Lynn Schwartz was twenty-two when she received a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, to write this book. She had finished all of the research and most of the writing when she died suddenly, at the age of twenty-six. The book was completed by her mother, Sheila Schwartz, author and professor at SUNY, New Paltz, New York.
