|Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
David Merrill, a successful director, has spent the last couple of years working on movies overseas. He returns right in the middle of the McCarthy era Communist witch-hunt that was sweeping through Hollywood. When first approached by the 'inquisitors' he rebuffs them, not realizing how much influence they have. He soon finds that he can't get work, having been blacklisted for failing to cooperate. However, if he will just tell them what they want to know, he can go back to work.
