EXODUS
November 27, 2017  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

This 1960 film is tonight’s prime-time centerpiece of TCM’s current overview of the history of blacklisting, and the end of that persecuting era, in Hollywood. Exodus, directed by Otto Preminger, is the story of the creation of the state of Israel in 1948. It’s based on the bestseller by Leon Uris, and is adapted for the screen by Dalton Trumbo – whose on-screen credit that year, along with his credited resurfacing the same year on Spartacus, effectively broke the blacklist by letting Trumbo, who refused to name names before the House Un-American Activities Committee, work once again under his own name. Paul Newman stars.
