Personal Quote:

Nobody could imagine just how terrible McCarthyism would be. So many careers went down the toilet. See more »

Trivia:

Originally a pretty starlet/ingenue in Hollywood, Morley's career was ruined 50 years ago by the Hollywood Blacklist/McCarthyism. She has long been a staunch left-wing activist around the San Francisco area. Now in her 90s, she appeared in a Vanity Fair photoshoot featuring other surviving victims of the Blacklist in December, 1999. See more »
