Subject: RE: Pete Seeger wrinkles the brow of HUAC
The transcript of Paul Robeson's testimony can be found in Eric Bentley's THIRTY YEARS OF TREASON, Pete's appearance is in there also. MY favorite was Zero Mostel. When they asked him his name he said "Sam Mostel". They then inquired if he was also known as Zero, and if so, why? He said it was in honor of his financial standing in the community. They asked who he worked for? "19th Century Fox." "Would you care to amend that?" "Yes, make that 18th Century Fox!"
