|Viewing Single Post From: Blacklisted Actors/Actress with Soap Ties|

Wikipedia has a great article on the black era of US History that resulted in many in the entertainment industry being blacklisted and deemed Commies. |
The URL is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hollywood_blacklist
There are many on the list there that have ties to soap operas in some form. Many of these blacklisted performers were relegated to working in soaps too because of the black list.
Barbara Bel Geddes
Sam Jaffe (husband of soap actress, Bettye Ackerman)
George Keane (was married to the great radio soap actress, Betty Winkler)
I possibly missed some. If I did please point them out.
This is a sad period in the history of the US. So many of these stars had their careers ruined by this.
ETA: Some names left off the list.
