"'Every word she writes is a lie, including ‘and’ and ‘the.’ '- Mary McCarthy about Lillian Hellman. Hellman v. McCarthy pits the two literary lionesses against each other in a dramatic reenactment of the $1 million slander lawsuit Hellman brought against Mary McCarthy. The suit wasn’t settled until Hellman’s death in 1984. Dick Cavett is the casual commentator in this witty and revealing dark comedy. Both Hellman and McCarthy thrived in a man’s world, but not by being kinder or gentler" (pygmalionproductions.org).
