Look Who’s Back: Hollywood and the Black List

Look who's back

Saturday 2 – Wednesday 27 September, 2023

The 1960s saw the return to the mainstream of a number of film professionals who had been blacklisted in the anti-communist drive within the Hollywood film industry in the late 1940s and 1950s. During the late 1960s and early 1970s, when America was experiencing social and political upheaval, filmmakers once persecuted for their progressive politics became seen as more in tune with the times.

This strand invites audiences to re-think the contribution of Hollywood’s blacklistees to American cinema. Far from being a spent creative force as they are often represented, these films show that formerly blacklisted directors, actors and screenwriters made a vital contribution to the re-invigorating of cinema in one of American film’s most creative eras. Featuring Jules Dassin‘s Uptight (1968); John Schlesinger‘s Midnight Cowboy (1969); Robert Altman‘s M*A*S*H(1970); and John Berry‘s Claudine (1974).
