Introduction by Foster Hirsch!

This propaganda potboiler from B-movie stalwart Gordon Douglas is the noir-ish tale of a man recruited by the FBI to infiltrate his local chapter of commies… causing his family and friends to question his patriotism. This hardnosed, un-nuanced anti-Communist movie remains an incredible document of the attitudes and policies that lead to the HUAC hearings and more. Brattle Debut!

Double Feature with THEM!
