The Front is a tragic comedy about McCarthy blacklisting that may resonant more today than when first released in 1976. Woody Allen plays a cashier who poses as a writer for a group of blacklisted television writers. All goes well until he is called before the House Un-American Activities Committee and he is forced to decide where his loyalties lie. Director Martin Ritt, star Zero Mostel, screenwriter Walter Bernstein, and many other talents involved with The Front were real-life victims of the Hollywood blacklist.
