The fascinating thing of the McCarthy “black list” is that the guys included there (some of them members of the US Communist Party) won around 50 Oscars 😀 using nicknames or frontwriters. One of the most prolific was Dalton Trumbo who won two Oscars while blacklisted. Later when the blacklist was lifted he wrote the script of Spartacus (starred by Kirk Douglas).
