1938 was Trumbo’s annus mirabilis. He wrote his first memorable film and his greatest novel, and he married his true love. A Man to Remember was one of the few B films to earn excellent reviews and return A-level profits. Johnny Got His Gun won a National Book Award, and it became the Bible for generations of antiwar partisans. Cleo Fincher became his emotional anchor, steadying him for the successes he earned. Trumbo also became active in the antiwar movement.
