Summary Documents the rise of Dalton Trumbo's career in Hollywood and his subsequent public humiliation for being among the 'Hollywood Ten' blacklisted by the House Un-American Activities Committee in the 1940s for communist associations. Exiled and penniless, he wrote under various pseudonyms, and even won an Academy Award. Viewed by many as a moral and just man, Dalton stood for the American value and right of free expression.
Note Special features: Paul Giamatti reads Trumbo's letter to Ring Lardner, Jr. (June 1953) ; Danny Glover reads Trumbo's letter to Arthur, film associate (December 1947) ; Photo gallery.
