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.… (mer)

The period of time of the blacklist in Hollywood is an embarrassing time for our history. But, with all history, it has its roots in period realities, fears, and social significance. Just after WWII, the devastation of that conflict brought into light many of the normal concerns and fears that such a cataclysmic event can produce. Political preferences were just as likely to be called into question and perspectives analyzed. Communism was no exception. Many jumped onto the "bandwagon" of the Communists with its seeming intent to ensure equal distribution. At the same time, fears that large military endeavors can occur, stoked the fears of Americans to a world seemingly in disarray. Having grown-up very poor, Trumbo had a talent for writing and recognition of social issues. As -- what I would call -- a "free-thinker" of the time, Communism probably seemed like a worthy consideration. Labor and management -- the people and government, the have's and have not's -- to someone wanting more for others, it seemed a legitimate choice. Dalton Trumbo managed to work-through and prosper during the blacklist period without sacrificing his personal convictions. He didn't talk. He didn't name names. Dalton Trumbo was a fighter and worker and seemed to earn it everyday. It's a testament to the character of the individual. A family man who loved his wife and children, Dalton Trumbo remained Dalton Trumbo despite the ignorance and severity of the blacklist period. ( )

I received this audiobook free to review here. The narration was painfully poor to listen to, which made it hard for me to become interested in the content. While I am a history buff, this account of one writer’s struggle with censorship did not win my focus. Honestly, if the narration had been more professional, I might have become more engaged. ( )

Received this audio book through LibraryThing Early Reviewers. It appears to be a tie-in to the film of said title being released.

It was an interesting biography on Dalton Trumbo during the Blacklist period in Hollywood during the 40's and 50's. The book paints a clear picture of the struggle of those affected by the politics of the time period.

As far as the audiobook was concerned, I found it to be a little too slow paced for my liking and at times I had a difficult time staying focused on the narrator's voice. ( )

I received this audiobook from Library Thing and appreciate the publisher providing it. That said, I found this audiobook problematic. The narration quality was poor: mispronounced words, untrained vocal rhythms that made me embarrassed for the reader, though the reading did improve after the first disc. The story assumes the reader knows generally about the Hollywood blacklist of the McCarthy era, so it may not be for a fully general public. My interest--and I did know the basic history behind it--was marginal at the outset, and only slightly piqued by listening to the story.
