More About Trumbo by Bruce Cook
 
 
 
Overview
ONE OF "BUSTLE'S "BOOKS TO READ BEFORE OSCAR SEASON IS OVER
The true story that inspired the major motion picture starring Bryan Cranston and Helen Mirren.
Dalton Trumbo was the central figure in the "Hollywood Ten," the blacklisted and jailed screenwriters. One of several hundred writers, directors, producers, and actors who were deprived of the opportunity to work in the motion picture industry from 1947 to 1960, he was the first to see his name on the screen again. When that happened, it was "Exodus," one of the year's biggest movies.This intriguing biography shows that all his life Trumbo was a radical of the homegrown, independent variety. From his early days in Colorado, where his grandfather was a county sheriff, to Los Angeles, where he organized a bakery strike, to bootlegging, to Hollywood, where he was the highest-paid screenwriter when he was blacklisted (and a man with constant money problems), his life rivaled anything he had written. His credits include "Kitty Foyle," "The Brave One," "Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo," "Spartacus," "Lonely are the Brave," and "Papillon," and he is the author of a power pacifist novel, "Johnny Got His Gun."
