Personal Quote:

[on serving as a "front" for blacklisted writers in the 1950s]: I tell you, I never read a newspaper until I was fifty. I never looked at television until the 1970s. I never read "Time" magazine. I never tended to be political, I never voted. So I didn't understand this whole blacklist thing.
