  • McCarthyism made villains of many, heros of a few. This is the story of what happened to a schoolteacher who became persoanally interested in school integration, and was murdered the night before appearing before the House Unamerican Activities Committee.moreless

    Two mistakes: 1)The protagonist was NOT a Communist, only a schoolteacher interestred in integration. In his own classroom. This brings him into cntact with a Communist group. 2)"Red Glare" does NOT only refer to "better red than dead." I assume you've sung the Star Spangled Banner?!



    The schoolteacher and his family lose everything: he: his wife, his job, the respect of his son, who loses his girl an all his friends. The FBI is implicated. McCathyism is damned. The murderer is quite a surprise. Too bad CC didn't have it's black-and-white stuff going then...



    Please let's see that things like this don't happen in our oountry again!moreless
