Just in time for the Oscars, we bring you “The Waldorf Conference” by Nat Segaloff, Daniel M. Kimmel and Arnie Reisman, starring Edward Asner, Charles Durning, and Ron Rifkin. On November 24, 1947, the most powerful men in American film met in New York's plush Waldorf-Astoria Hotel to decide how to address the Communist witch-hunt being carried out by the House Un-American Activities Committee. Twenty-four hours later they emerged having created the Hollywood Blacklist. The Waldorf Conference dramatically speculates on what went on in that room.
