"The authors show how the Soviet Comintern decided to make the film capital a prime target in the late 1920's. They follow the lives of Budd Schulberg, Ring Lardner Jr., Maurice Rapf and other young radicals who journeyed to the USSR in the early 1930s, underwent a political conversion experience there, and came back to Hollywood as apostles preaching a Soviet gospel. They take us inside the cells and discussion groups that Communist Party members formed, the guilds and unions they tried to take over, and the studios they aimed to influence."--Jacket." ;
