Looking for reasons why the traitor Goldstein was changed to Calidor in the movie. I understand the character O'Brien was changed to O'Connor so as not to confuse the lead actor (Edmund O'Brien) with the character, but why the other name change? Did it have anything to do with McCarthy and his witchhunts of of Hollywood?

Yes. Calidor was the name of a witch having an affair with Joe McCarthy. The name change was meant to get Joe's goat. :)
