To Any Television or Movie Viewer,

My name is Julie Garfield. I am the daughter of John Garfield. John Garfield was the most famous movie star brought down by the Blacklist. He was hounded by HUAC, our phones were tapped, he was followed by the FBI, and his career was destroyed. He died of a heart attack at the age of 39. I call it a broken heart and a broken life.

SAG did not stand up for him, nor for the others who were blacklisted during this shameful time in American history.

When I see a list of actors, like the one forwarded to me from this blog, and a message not to vote for them for awards it sends chills down my spine. To think that certain union members would stoop this low is horrifying to me.

Whoever it is who is responsible for writing this list, does not deserve to be a member of our Union.

Sincerely Yours,
Julie Garfield
