A reminder of our past= a solid film=Should be on video !!!!
"Fear on Trial" is the story of John Henry Faulk (William Devane), a rising personality on CBS in the 1950's, who is suddenly deprived of his livelihood after being accused of Communist sympathies and blacklisted.

Unlike others in this situation, he secures the services of a prominent attorney, Louis Nizer (George C. Scott), and sues his accusers for libel, winning a generous settlement in a landmark trial, ending the climate of fear begun under McCarthyism.

A great film that should be on home video, a reminder of how precious and vulnerable our freedoms are.
