Trumbo took time from his black-market work to write several political tracts. When fourteen leaders of the California Communist Party were indicted, tried, and convicted for violating the Alien Registration Act, Trumbo wrote a second brilliant indictment of the domestic cold war, The Devil in the Book. As an act of solidarity, he rejoined the Communist Party but resigned once the Supreme Court overturned the fourteen leaders’ convictions. He also took time to rethink his earlier membership in the party, its secrecy, and the Hollywood Ten’s strategy.
