During the 1940s, Herbert Philbrick infiltrated the dangerous Communist Party USA (CPUSA) for the FBI. Finally "coming in out of the cold" to testify at the trial of the Party leadership for plotting the violent overthrow of the United States, he wrote a book about his experiences that was later adapted into a long running television program. Completely forgotten today, I LED 3 LIVES..filmed in a DRAGNET docudrama style...remains THE best and most realistic show ever done about espionage. This fine book tells the whole story of an American hero and a gleaming moment in the golden age of television. Episodes available in the Library DVD collection.
