Ring was blacklisted during the Red Scare of 1940s and 1950s America. He refused to testify to the House Un-American Activities Committee and was fined $1,000 and imprisoned for a year. Afterwards he said he never regretted his ties with communism, saying 'I still think that some form of socialism is a more rational way to organize a society, but I recognize it hasn't worked anywhere yet'.
Ring was famous for stating that "Margaret Mitchell's novel Gone With the Wind" would not make a good movie and that "M*A*S*H" would not translate into a successful TV series.
