Synopsis

Trivial films that attack in depth the capitalist system, studio screenwriters dealing with uncomfortable topics (racism, homosexuality, drugs, repression or the American dream as a great lie) crypto-communist subliminal messages, the cinema of the Great Depression , the one of the Cold War, witch hunt, the ten martyrs of the Black Listed and the ones, who gave their names (to save their “swimming-pools” as stated by Orson Welles). All this is Red Hollywood told with fragments of films of the period, interviews to the ones involved (Abraham Polonsky, Paul Jarrico, Ring Lardner Jr), fallen myths and legends, and not so romantic truths
