The chapter focuses on the impact of the HUAC hearings on Milestone’s personal and professional life. In 1950 the Milestones left Hollywood and travelled between LA and Europe for several years. He was interrogated by a HUAC investigator in Los Angeles and attacked in the press. Fox Studio’s Darryl Zanuck hired him to direct Halls of Montezuma, a WWII picture about an American assault on a Pacific island, starring Richard Widmark as a psychologically wounded officer; Kangaroo, an adventure filmed on location in Australia, with Peter Lawford, Richard Boone and Maureen O’Hara; and a routine adaptation of Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables back in Hollywood.

Keywords:   Halls of Montezuma, Kangaroo, Les Miserables, HUAC, Darryl Zanuck, Richard Widmark, Richard Boone, Peter Lawford, Fox Studios, Australia
