i think it was his utter unregeneracy  and a general slipperiness of character

re Sterling Hayden: he was deeply conflicted about testifying  went to a
psychotherapist who unbeknownst to him was a hireling of  HUAC and or the FBI
this piece of work persuaded him -- and several other characters -- that it
would morally appropriate for them to name names   as a result of his
testimony, Hayden as I recall went into a very deep depression  which nearly
ruined his career  years later he was haunted by the event   mentioned it in
his autobiography and evinced his hatred of what he had done and for the
doctor

I myself thought it was utterly inappropriate 1  for the award to be given
and 2 for Kazan to have a standing ovation   what a craven bunch
