As long as we're in the mood for celebrating Hollywood, it's interesting to note that even conservative icon Ronald Reagan—a past president of the Screen Actors Guild—supported the "basic right" of workers to organize and bargain collectively. You know, sometimes.

[Tangential aside: While Reagan not only presided over SAG during the height of the Hollywood Blacklist, but collaborated with it, a blacklisted cousin of mine, Bernie Gordon, managed to write a number of screenplays under an assumed name, including the 1957 Hellcats of the Navy, the only feature to star Ron and Nancy. Cousin Bernie took some satisfaction at the irony.]
