Ring Lardner, J. a screenwriter who was blacklisted after the Second World War as one of the Hollywood Ten, screenwriters who were incarcerated for contempt of Congress after refusing to answer questions posed by the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC). He won two Academy Awards for his screenplays-one before (for Woman of the Year in 1942) and one after (for M A S H in 1970) his imprisonment and blacklisting. His book, The Lardners, My Family Remembered (ISBN 0060125179), is a reliable source of Lardner information.
In his book on Lardner, published in 1963, Walton R. Patrick agrees, saying that Jim Kendall meets his death as the result of his meddling and richly deserves his fate. However, such a reading ignores the act in the story more evil than Jim’s jokes; that is, Jim’s accidental death. Perhaps because the killer is what folks at the time called a halfwit, readers have felt that no one is guilty. But I believe that Lardner’s satire is even more savage than most people think.
