HELLMAN V. McCARTHY is based on the greatest literary feud in modern American history. On January 24, 1980, Mary McCarthy appeared as a guest on “The Dick Cavett Show” and declared that “every word [Lillian Hellman] writes is a lie, including ‘and’ and ‘the.’” Hellman being Hellman (even her friends feared her venom) went ballistic and sued McCarthy for libel. The suit spanned more than four years and was the talk of the literary community.
