Remarks: “Face to Face with Communism” appeared on American TV screens just as Senator Joseph McCarthy became a household name. The hotel clerk is a clone for Joseph Stalin, and the hammer and sickle on the banner outside the “public library” mark the death of the First Amendment, without which democracy will belong to the Commissars.
