In 1947, witty, outspoken, irascible Dalton Trumbo—the Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Roman Holiday and Spartacus—went to prison for defying the House Committee on Un-American Activities and became one of the framed Hollywood Ten. Through his wildly funny and thought-provoking correspondence, Trumbo’s son Christopher has created a touching portrait of an extraordinary man.
