    The Front (1976) stars Woody Allen in his first dramatic role as Howard Prince, a nebbishy cashier/part-time bookie who, during the McCarthy-era communist witch-hunt, does a favor for an old school friend, a blacklisted TV writer (Michael Murphy). As his pal’s “front”—representing the scribe’s work as his own and collecting ten percent of the profits—the apolitical schlemiel is soon enjoying not just the money but the perks, including the love of a sophisticated young producer (Andrea Marcovicci). But in an atmosphere of fear, nobody’s above suspicion, and Howard’s growing friendship with another unfairly accused blacklistee (Zero Mostel) brings down the wrath of HUAC—and a confrontation with his own burgeoning conscience.
