Trumbo and the rest of the Hollywood Ten, blacklisted by the movie industry and indicted for contempt of Congress, waged a vigorous three-year fight to stay out of prison. Public opinion, however, was against them. Those years witnessed the beginning of the scriptwriting black market and Trumbo’s antipathy toward liberal anti-Communists.
