The Hollywood Ten is a 1950 American 16mm short documentary film. In the film, each member of the Hollywood Ten made a short speech denouncing McCarthyism and the Hollywood blacklisting.

The film was directed by John Berry. Berry was blacklisted upon the film's release, and unable to find work, he left for France.[1]

The documentary is available on the DVD releases of Spartacus[2] and Salt of the Earth.



The Hollywood Ten was shown at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City as a part of the "Carte Blache" series.[3]
