One of the last films produced as part of Hollywood’s contribution to McCarthyism, the film received an Oscar nomination for Best Writing, Motion Picture Story.

Legendary director Leo McCarey took on this controversial and infamous drama about a conservative religious couple (Helen Hayes, Dean Jagger) that suspects their oldest son to be a communist. The arrogant and intellectual young man (Robert Walker), a worker in a federal agency, returns home from a long absence spouting pro-communism doctrine and deriding the beliefs of capitalism and religion.
