Just finished watching Crossfire, a film made in 1947, the year my parents were born. It’s a good film, with shockingly modern themes. I have many thoughts on it, which I will have to write about later, besides what I have already tweeted on the Twitter. These topics go well beyond the film itself, to subjects such as McCarthyism and the Red Scare, liberalism in Hollywood, etc.
