Clarifying blacklist charge
6 January 2011 | by dsmithcohenSee all my reviews

This film is certainly not as interesting in plot or in writing as many of the radio shows or TV episodes, but it is a taste of Gertrude Berg and the rest of the cast. My main reason for writing is to correct the impression left by a previous reviewer that Mrs. Berg did not fight to retain Phillip Loeb in face of the blacklist charges against him. According to "Yoo-Hoo Mrs. Goldberg" -- a documentary made by Aviva Kempner, featuring many of the actors in the show -- Gertrude Berg worked tirelessly to find another sponsor before giving up and accepting that the show would have to replace him if it was going to return to the television airwaves. Reviewers should be very cautious about charges of this sort before making them in a forum where others may rely on them without doing further research.
