Zero Mostel Facts
One of the "12" blacklisted by the house of Un-American activities commitee in the 1950s.

He testified before the House Un-American Activities Committee on October 14, 1955. In a playful mood, he told the Committee that he was employed by "19th Century-Fox." He told the Committee that he would gladly discuss his own conduct but was prohibited by religious convictions from naming others. His refusal to name names resulted in his "blacklisting," and he did not star in a film for another 11 years.

Tony Award winner 1961 for "Rhinoceros."
