Fear on Trial

This TV movie explores the blacklisting of 1950s talk show host Henry Faulk . After Faulk is fired by CBS in the late '50s, he reluctantly leaves the entertainment industry for low-wage work, told by his lawyer that a court case against CBS could take years to come to trial. Faulk finally gets his day in court nearly a decade later. At the trial, the unpleasant realities of the McCarthy era -- and suffering of its victims -- are brought to light.
