: I have never read of Jack's position regarding the Hollywood blacklist of fellow artists during the "communism in Hollywood" scare.Did he support McCarthyiasm and the blacklist like some others ie Disney,Kazan,etc or did he voice his opposition?

I have never heard one way or the other, but based on the 1954 "Road to Nairobi" show with Bob Hope I would suspect that he was opposed to the Blacklist. I know for certain Bob was... and that McCarthy would have LOVED to have nailed him... but couldn't
