Mady Christians

MADY CHRISTIANS d1951. Austrian actress and naturalized US citizen who had a successful acting career in theatre and film in the United States until she was blacklisted during the McCarthy period. Her final roles were in the 1948 films ; "All My Sons" and "Letter From an Unknown Woman". During WW2 she was involved in political work on behalf of refugees, rights for workers and Russian War relief, political efforts that would bring her to the attention of the FBI and other anti-communist institutions and organizations. Later in 1950, the FBI's internal security division began investigating her (she had been identified as a "concealed communist" by a confidential informant). When her' name appeared in Red Channels (the so-called bible of the broadcast blacklist) her career was effectively over. She died of a stroke aged just 59 on October 28th 1951.
