    Comments: In November of 1944, a large rally was held at Madison Square Gardens called the “American-Soviet Friendship Rally.” It was attended by influential politicians and numerous Hollywood celebrities. The event was sponsored by the National Council of American-Soviet Friendship, which had a primary objective of fighting fascism around the world. In 1946, the House Un-American Activities Committee began a formal inquiry into the NCASF, eventually charging them for failing to register with the Subversive Activities Control Board. Many of the celebrities who attended these rallies would be called before Congress to explain their communist sympathies.
