520    Before he attained notoriety as Dean of the Hollywood Ten-
       -the blacklisted screenwriters and directors persecuted 
       because of their varying ties to the Communist Party--John
       Howard Lawson had become one of the most brilliant, 
       successful, and intellectual screenwriters on the 
       Hollywood scene in the 1930s and 1940s, with several hits 
       to his credit including Blockade, Sahara, and Action in 
       the North Atlantic. After his infamous, almost violent, 
       1947 hearing before the House Un-American Activities 
       Committee, Lawson spent time in prison and his lucrative 
       career was effectively over. Studded with anecdotes and 
       based on previously untapped archives, this first 
       biography of Lawson brings alive his era and features many
       of his prominent friends and associates, including John 
       Dos Passos, Theodore Dreiser, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Charles
       Chaplin, Gene Kelly, Edmund Wilson, Ernest Hemingway, 
       Humphrey Bogart, Dalton Trumbo, Ring Lardner, Jr., and 
       many others. Lawson's life becomes a prism through which 
       we gain a clearer perspective on the evolution and 
       machinations of McCarthyism and anti-Semitism in the 
       United States, on the influence of the left on Hollywood, 
       and on a fascinating man whose radicalism served as a foil
       for launching the political careers of two Presidents: 
       Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan. In vivid, marvelously 
       detailed prose, Final Victim of the Blacklist restores 
       this major figure to his rightful place in history as it 
       recounts one of the most captivating episodes in twentieth
       century cinema and politics
