Oscar Scandals: Hunter, Kim (Streetcar Named Desire)

Kim Hunter made a spectacular debut in A Streetcar Named Desire, for which she won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar.

However, shortly after that, her career was ruined when her name appeared in Red Channels, a Red-scare pamphlet. Hunter, too, was unable to get any work in Hollywood or New York and was finally rescued by the producers of the television series Omnibus.
