Like “American Revolutionary: The Evolution Of Grace Lee Boggs”, another 
documentary about a long-time leftist, “Irwin and Fran” starts with its 
protagonist Irwin Corey walking down a city street with the aid of a 
walker. Each film is a deeply touching tribute to a personality who kept 
true to their beliefs over a lifetime at some personal risk. While 
Corey’s main emphasis was on making people laugh, there were some who 
did not find him funny at all. After performing at a fund-raiser for the 
Foner brothers, who were facing charges of being “subversives”, Corey 
ended up on the blacklist himself.
