We ha< THE YEARS: HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN THE FACT THAT PEOPLE —ACTORS, PRODUCERS, DIRECTORS—WHO MAKE UP TO SAY FOUR THOUSAND DOLLARS A WEEK, TURNED COMMUNIST? Mr. Menjou: I have been asked this question in every section of the Union on various lecture tours over the country. What makes a person in a wonder ful economic situation turn Communist? I don't know; I don't think anybody knows. I can name offhand fifteen millionaire Communists in this country. They deny they're Communists so I won'l mention their names, but we all kihiw who they are. MR. BURT: PEOPLE WHO ARE EXPOSFI) AS TOOLS OF THE KREMLIN, OF THIS DIABOLICAL FOREIGN POWER THAT WANTS TO TAKE OVER THE UNITED STATES AND THE REST OF THE WOULD—HAVE ANY OF THEM COME BACK INTO THE MOTION- PICTURE INDUSTRY? DO THEY STILL MAKE PICTURES? Mr. Brewer: The vast majority of the people who got involved in the Communist party were deceived into gettine into it. They were deceived in two ways. Many of them were deceived by not knowing that they were actually helping the Communist party, and there were a lot of those who knew they were helping the Communist party but who never accepted the idea that the Communisl parly, as it was constituted in this country, was part of the world-wide conspir acy. They thought that il was a humanitarian effort. Most of those people who had been deceived are back working in the motion picture industry. "HARD CORE" DRIVEN OUT Now, ihose we term as the "hard core" have been isolated and have been driven out of the motion picture industry. The industry has not brought hack those who have been positively identified as Communists or who have failed to respond to a subpoena. But those people who did testify, who ''came clean" and acknowledged the fact that they had been a part of this thing and have helped the industry separate the guilty from the innocent, have come back. Mr. Menjou: Roy, I'm going to argue with you about that for just a second. Salt of the Earth—is that a part of the motion picture industry? Mr. Brewer: Well, of course, this is an exception that proves the rule. In oilier words, the people who made Salt of the Earth were the people who have been rejected from what we consider to be the legitimate motion picture industry. They went down to New Mexico, got ahold of a union which has been (Continued on Page 50) Mr. inspired pro- emains that, accord ceeT?'* examples of how the) did -. ..a.,'!!
