This weekend, Film Forum kicks off a 13-film festival celebrating the actor and filmmaker Lee Grant. In the prime of her career - her "ingénue years," as she calls them - she was blacklisted by the House Committee on Un-American Activities, rendering her unemployable in Hollywood. She spoke to WNYC's Sara Fishko in 2014 about those years, and the bizarre circumstances of her return to stardom. (Produced in 2014)
Lee Grant: Actor. Filmmaker. begins at Film Forum on Saturday, November 17 and continues through February 12, with appearances by Grant on opening night and select dates.
Lee Grant's book, I Said Yes to Everything: A Memoir, is available on Amazon.
