Description
Steven and Elona Anthony's home would be razed to build a Hollywood television and film museum that never came to pass. Anonymous contributors raised bail money to free him from a 1 yr. jail term following his conviction of resisting arrest and battery against two sheriff's deputies who came to evict him and his family. On the eve of his court appearance, Edmond De La Patie, Vice-President at Warner Bros. Studio and a Hollywood Museum official, charged that the fight over the Anthonys' eviction might have been Communist inspired, to which Mr. Anthony replied, "It's more character assassination. I hate and despise pinkos. The American Legion, the Baptist Ministers and four Young Republican groups are backing me. They ought to know if I'm a Communist."
Photograph caption dated April 15, 1964 reads, "Even as his home was falling to the wrecking crews, Steven Anthony vowed to 'keep fighting.' The ex-Marine watched demolition with red-rimmed eyes and clenched fists: 'There are too many of them.'"
