    • Judy was summoned to testify before the House Un-American Activities Comittee in in 1952 by Senator Joe McCarthy. She totally fooled McCarthy and the committee as to her knowledge by playing the "dumb blonde" character she had made famous in Born Yesterday (1950) and other movies and avoided naming any names or giving any information about friends of hers who were accused of being Communists. As a result, she was the only person to testify and not give information before the committee that was not blacklisted from Hollywood.
