I Was a Communist for the FBI - True Stories of the FBI Undercover - Traitors for Hire - Pit Viper - Red Herring - Hit 50's Radio Show!
I Was a Communist for the FBI is a 1951 American film noir crime film directed by Gordon Douglas starring Frank Lovejoy, Dorothy Hart, Philip Carey and James Millican. The film was produced by Bryan Foy who was head of Warners B picture unit until 1942.
The film and radio show are, in part, artifacts of the McCarthy era, as well as a time capsule of American society during the Second Red Scare. The purpose of both is partly to warn people about the threat of Communist subversion of American society. The tone of the show is ultra-patriotic, with Communists portrayed as racist, vindictive, and tools of a totalitarian foreign power, the Soviet Union (Wikipedia)
