Cinema Sentries has teamed up with Grand Central Publishing to award one lucky reader the trade paperback edition of the 1977 biography TRUMBO by Bruce Cook (on-sale: September 8, 2015; ISBN: 9781455564972; $15.99), in coordination with the Nov 6 release of the film of the same name starring Bryan Cranston. For those wanting to learn more:
Dalton Trumbo was the central figure in the "Hollywood Ten," the blacklisted and jailed screenwriters. One of several hundred film-industry professionals 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. All his life, Trumbo was a radical of the independent variety, and his life rivaled anything he ever wrote. From his early life in Colorado, where his grandfather was a county sheriff, to his bootlegging days in Los Angeles, to his heyday as a top-paid (and frequently broke) Hollywood screenwriter, his story is a fascinating look at a tumultuous time in recent American history.
