    You missed one of the bigger cases of this. Michael Parks was blacklisted for years in Hollywood. After his show, Bronson, was cancelled, Parks found little worri within the system. His only hope was when those who didn't play by H'wd's rules and admired the man's talent came calling. Eventually he would find roles again, but Tinseltown hamstrung him for many years.

    Now I need to go back and watch Chaplin again with R.D.J. a fantastic film and some of his best work in my opinion. Fear mongering has always been a part of our (the U.S.) governments way of controlling the populace. Other governments do it too. But what Trump is doing while in office is or should be criminal.

    It's pretty obvious why Jim Caviezel got blacklisted. Because he played Jesus! And he actually became a Follower of Christ. To be honest he probably doesn't even care about being blacklisted. That's how radically his life has changed.

    You showed a favorite of mine at the beginning but didn't mention him so I will. Zero Mostel was another great actor blacklisted by the McCarthyism of the times. Well respected as an actor and singer he was dropped by MGM because he was going to be named a Communist by the HUAC and his Hollywood career never recovered, though he was able to return to the stage later in his life.

    If you ask me, Grey's Anatomy became a much better show affter Burkes character was gone. So, if you ask me, it ended up being a positive thing that he was such a douche. Plus, in my opinion, George O'Malleys character was way more intriguing, ,by far. Not to mention, my favorite character....I actually cried when he left the show...but not just once. 3× actually...1× was actually 2days later when I thought about it driving in the car. I couldn't believe I did that lol

    KD Lang. The singer refused to change and it cost her a lot. Too bad because I could listen to her voice for hours. She has that same pussycat quality to her voice that Roy Orbison had. They did a remake of 'Crying' as a duo, and it was incredible. Waste of a huge talent.

    Lloyd Bridges was a first-class jerk, according to the actors (and actresses) who worked with him. Is there a reason that Mel Gibson is trying to make himself look as much like Saddam Hussain at the time of his capture as possible? And finally, the actress who criticized the move Knocked Up as being sexist, and frozen out of Hollywood for expressing her opinion, and no-one came to her defense as having the right to express her views. Instead they sided with those that banned her. Nice solidarity there...

    Chaplin owned nearly all his work and did not allow it to be shown in the U.S. Also left out Ingrid Bergman, because she had an affair with Italian director Roberto Rossellini wholefilming "Stromboli". They produced a beautiful and talented daughter, Isabella.

    I think it's important to add that some of these people brought being blacklisted by Hollywood all on their own. Katherine Heigel is a great example. Her diva attitude & the fact that she believed she was a amazingly talented actress & could behave that way because she was in demand. Not many actresses actually talk shit about a movie they had a co-starring role in. Now people barely remember who she is or what she acted in. 🌻

    Ah, Mel Gibson getting a comeback... and we all conveniently should now forget all of his racism, sexism, homophobia, not to mention beating his wife and threatening ever more harm. So you can get the permanent boot for literally stating the truth about a film you starred in but you can be a horrible human being and still get another change. Gee... guess the genders of these two options.
