Editorial Reviews

A Film by ROBERT CARL COHEN
"an event in the evolution of Cinema, being the first political pamphlet ever made."
- Alberto Cavalcanti
"Excellent documentary... Viewers stimulated to hard thought on important subject."
- Washington Library Film Circuit
The first film by a private citizen which criticizes a US goverment committee, includes 1930s footage of House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) Chairman Martin Dies (D) of Texas attacking "subversives" in labor unions; the Hollywood Witch Hunts; the Cold War blacklistings; & the 1960 San Francisco hearings where police turned fire hoses on student protestors inside the City Hall. The film contains an analysis of how the HUAC subpoened the newsfilms of the City Hall protests from TV stations KRON & KPIX & used federal facilities to edit them into "Operation Abolition," a falsified film attacking the HUAC'S critics; thousands of copies of which were then sold for private profit throughout the USA, including to the Armed Forces. Revelation of "Operation Abolitions" untruths led to the Pentagon banning it from all military bases.
Among the HUAC's critics shown: Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt & Harry S. Truman, civil rights leader Reverend Wyatt T. Walker, Congressmen James Roosevelt & Phillip Burton, & Frank Wilkinson, Director of the National Committee Against Repressive Legislation who, like the "Hollywood Ten," was imprisoned for insisting that the First Amendment gave him the right to refuse to answer questions about his political beliefs & associations.
Freedom of Information Act files also reveal that the HUAC, in violation of the First Amendment, investigated Robert Carl Cohen for making this film.
In 1977 COMMITTEE ON UNAMERICAN ACTIVITIES was Certified by the US Information Agency (USIA) as being of an "International Educational Character."
AUDIENCE: Concerned Citizens & Students of History, American Studies, Communism, Civics, Law, Government, Sociology, Political Science, & Social Psychology
