This scene set up a furore at the Red quiz hearing. Attorney William R. Esterman (pointing) demands that Deputy United States Marshal George Rossini (back to camera) oust two women spectators occupying seats he and other lawyer used the first two days of the hearing. Rossini ruled that there were no "reserved seats" for the hearing. Women are Constance Walter (back, seated), daughter of a congressman, and Mrs. David Head, wife of federal referee in bankruptcy. Photo dated: March 25, 1953.
