A look at the filming of the 1953 political drama "Salt of the Earth," made by artists blacklisted by Hollywood during the McCarthy era. That film's producer, Paul Jarrico, speaks about his late colleagues, Herbert Biberman and Michael Wilson, and about the Communist scare that gripped the film community in the 1950s.
