In 1945, Fagan claimed he saw secret documents of the meetings in Yalta, shown to him by author John T. Flynn, that led him to write the plays Red Rainbow, and Thieves Paradise. Written in 1945, Red Rainbow portrays Roosevelt, Stalin and others in Yalta plotting to deliver the Balkans, Eastern Europe and Berlin to Stalin. Left-wing groups in the New York opposed the production of the play and Fagan had difficulties getting financial backing to produce it. Fagan took the play to Hollywood where he encountered even more protests against it than he had in New York.

In the late 1940s Fagan launched a one-man crusade against what he claimed was a “Red Conspiracy in Hollywood”. Out of this crusade would come the Cinema Education Guild.[2]

In 1953, Red Rainbow was produced by Bruce Fagan and staged for 16 performances at the Royal Theatre between 14 September and 26 September.

Written two years later, Thieves Paradise portrays the same group plotting to create the United Nations as a Communist front for one world government.[5]

Despite opposition, Thieves Paradise opened at the Las Palmas Theatre in Hollywood on December 26, 1947. It starred Howard Johnson[6] who was subject to a campaign of harassment so bitter and intense that it sent him to St. Vincent’s Hospital with a nervous breakdown after six performances and never made another movie in Hollywood.[citation needed]Thieves Paradise was also produced and staged at the El Patio theatre in Hollywood in April, 1948. It opened on April 12,and, despite protest against it, was able to complete its run.
Between 1967 and 1968 Fagan recorded The Illuminati and the Council on Foreign Relations, three LP records allegedly documenting the activities of a secret society known as “The Illuminati” which were produced by Anthony J. Hilder.

He was married to actress Minna Gombell, who starred in many of his productions.

Myron C. Fagan died on 12 May 1972 in Los Angeles, California, USA.
