Blacklist
   Following the citation of the Hollywood Ten for contempt in 1947, leaders of the major Hollywood film studios met in New York City in 1947 and agreed that the 10 and any other known communists or communist sympathizers should not be employed in the film industry. The Motion Picture Association of America endorsed the decision in November 1947, and the blacklist operated until 1960.
   See also Cinema; McCarthyism.
