Roy Cohn and Joseph R. McCarthy, 1954Download nowEnlargeShow similar images

Title: Roy Cohn and Joseph R. McCarthy, 1954

Description: Joseph R. McCarthy (Joseph Raymond McCarthy; November 14, 1908-May 2, 1957), at right, U.S. Senator (Rep., Wis.; 1947-1957), and his legal counsel Roy Cohn (Roy Marcus Cohn; February 20, 1927-August 2, 1986), at left, conducting their defense in U.S. Army-McCarthy Hearings in 1954 in Washington, D.C., where McCarthy and Cohn were charged that they had sought special favors for an enlisted man in the U.S. Army, G. David Shine, a close friend of Cohn's. Beginning in 1950, McCarthy made claims that communist subversives in great numbers were working at important U.S. government posts, initiating the "Red Scare" during the Cold War. He reportedly made these claims without substantiating them, outlandishly accusing scores of persons, often without foundation, of communist activities. One of McCarthy's closest supporters and reportedly the main supplier of the faulty information he used in his accusations was FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover (John Edgar Hoover; January 1, 1895-May 2, 1972), who was himself later accused of extensive abuse of power by conducting illegal surveillance of dissidents and activists. McCarthy allegedly wrecked many political and private careers in the so-called "McCarthy Witch Hunts." He was called a demagogue, using false accusations and fear tactics to gain his politcal ends, which was termed "McCarthyism." He lost popularity by the mid-1950s and was censured by the U.S. Senate in December 1954. By that time, McCarthy had allegedly become a hopeless alcoholic and died three years later. He was the role model for a character appearing in the film, The Manchurian Candidate (1954) by actor James Gregory (an incisive portrayal). He was directly profiled by Peter Boyle in the 1977 made-for-TV film Tail Gunner Joe, by George Wallace in the in the 1977 film The Private Files of J. Edgar Hoover, by Harris Yulin in the 1985 TV series Robert Kennedy and His Times, by Tony Curtis in the 1985 film Insignificance, by Charles Hallahan in the 1987 made-for-TV film J. Edgar Hoover, and impressively by Joe Don Baker in the 1992 made-for-TV film Citizen Cohn.
