About this Item: Cameron Associates Inc., New York, 1957. First Edition. In dustjacket. Red fabric with stamped, black lettering to spine. Ex-Libris from Jerome Grossman, to front endpages. ?Author was an?American?novelist, journalist and?screenwriter?who was imprisoned for ten months and?blacklisted?by the?movie studio?bosses for being one of the group known as the?Hollywood Ten. His career came to a halt in 1947, when he was summoned before the?House Un-American Activities Committee?(HUAC). He refused to deny or confirm involvement in the?Communist Party USA, and in 1950, he became one of the?Hollywood Ten?when he was imprisoned and blacklisted. After his release from prison, he worked at the?hungry i?nightclub in?San Francisco, running the lights and sound board and frequently introducing performers. Bessie left the Communist Party in the 1950s. In 1957, Bessie wrote a novel fictionalising his experiences with the HUAC,?The Un-Americans. ?He followed this with a non-fiction account of his confrontation with the same organisation,?Inquisition in Eden, in which he boasted of inserting pro-Soviet propaganda that was "subversive as all hell" into the film?Action in the North Atlantic. Bessie's greatest commercial and critical success came with the satirical novel?The Symbol, about the exploitation by the film industry of an unhappy actress who resembles?Marilyn Monroe. He wrote another non-fiction book in 1975,?Spain Again, which chronicled his experiences as a co-writer and actor in a Spanish movie of the same name (Spain Again, 1969).? Very Good in Very Good dustjacket. Soiling to dustjacket back cover. Binding tight. Textblock clean. Seller Inventory # 32119
