Notes: Arthur Miller was ordered to appear before The House Committee on Un-American Activities, HUAC or HCUA, 1938Ė1975, with Marylin Monroe accompanying him. Miller was found guilty of contempt of Congress in May 1957, because he would not name any other person - Miller was fined $500, sentenced to thirty days in prison, blacklisted, and disallowed a U.S. passport. In 1958 his conviction was overturned by the court of appeals, which ruled that Miller had been misled by the chairman of HUAC.
