Concealed Enemies

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Concealed Enemies is a 1984 American PBS docudrama, produced by WGBH-TV in Boston,[1] about the events leading to the arrest, conviction and imprisonment of former U.S. State Department official Alger Hiss. Directed by Jeff Bleckner, written by Hugh Whitemore[2] and starring Edward Herrmann as Hiss, John Harkins as Whittaker Chambers and Peter Riegert as Richard Nixon, the two-part miniseries won the 1984 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Limited Series.[3]

(The title comes from August 25, 1948, known as "Confrontation Day," during which Whittaker Chambers stated:

The story has spread that in testifying against Mr. Hiss I am working out some old grudge, or motives of revenge or hatred. I do not hate Mr. Hiss. We were close friends, but we are caught in a tragedy of history. Mr. Hiss represents the concealed enemy against which we are all fighting, and I am fighting. I have testified against him with remorse and pity, but in a moment of history in which this Nation now stands, so help me God, I could not do otherwise.[4][5]

Senator Joseph McCarthy paraphrased this phrase with his own: "the enemy within.")

Goldcrest Films invested £558,000 in the film and received £545,000 causing them a loss of £13,000.[6]
