THE RED SCARE BEGAN ON THIS DAY IN 1947

On October 20, 1947, the notorious Red Scare kicks into high gear in
Washington, as a Congressional committee begins investigating
Communist influence in one of the world’s richest and most
glamorous communities: Hollywood.

After World War II, the Cold War began to heat up between the world’s
two superpowers—the United States and the communist-controlled
Soviet Union. In Washington, conservative watchdogs worked to out
communists in government before setting their sights on alleged
“Reds” in the famously liberal movie industry. In an investigation that
began in October 1947, the House Un-American Activities Committee 
grilled a number of prominent witnesses, asking bluntly “Are you or
have you ever been a member of the Communist Party?” Whether out
of patriotism or fear, some witnesses—including director Elia Kazan,
actors Gary Cooper and Robert Taylor and studio honchos Walt Disney
and Jack Warner—gave the committee names of colleagues they
suspected of being communists.

A small group known as the “Hollywood Ten” resisted, complaining
that the hearings were illegal and violated their
First Amendment
rights.

LABORATORY RESULTS ON THIS DAY IN 1965

Related image
Jack Ely (second from left) with The Kingsmen was 19 when he sang
the Portland, Oregon garage-band classic version, “Louie, Louie”.

Based on outcry from parents who bought into what may have started as an
idle rumor, the
FBI launched a formal investigation in 1964 into the supposedly pornographic lyrics of the song “Louie, Louie.” That investigation finally
neared its conclusion on this day in 1965, when the FBI Laboratory declared
the lyrics of “Louie Louie” to be officially unintelligible.

No one will ever know who started the rumor that “Louie Louie” was dirty. As written by Richard Berry in 1955, the lyrics revolve around a sailor from the Caribbean lamenting to a bartender named Louie about missing his far-away
love. As recorded in poor conditions and in a single take by The Kingsmen
in 1963.
