really liked it

A very good biography of a complicated man. Makes a good pairing with Elia Kazan: A Life, particularly since Trumbo, toward the end of his life, seemed to forgive the people who named names against the Hollywood Ten. His attitude certainly doesn't absolve them (and Trumbo's view wasn't shared by everyone who served time) but it was interesting.

Anyway, this is an easy recommendation for those interested in the history of film. Trumbo may not have been the greatest screenwriter in terms of output, but his place in history cannot be denied.
