LETTER : Brando's ordeal

Sir: The attack on Marlon Brando for speaking his mind, by the Hollywood Jewish hierarchy, smacks of nothing so much as McCarthyism. We had the branding, the threats, the arraignment, the "confession" and the abject apology, complete with tears (report, 13 April), and the return to the fold. This episode will leave a bad feeling in the minds of all liberal-minded people, Jews and non-Jews alike.
