Dalton Trumbo mug shot!

You know him as the author of Spartacus (1960), Papillon (1973) and Johnny Got His Gun (1971) but in 1947, after writer Dalton Trumbo’s refusal to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee, he was blacklisted AND sent to jail. This is his mug shot from 1950. He later won an Oscar for his script for The Brave One, written under the pseudonym Robert Rich in 1956.

  1. Sorry but he wasn’t the author Papillon, he made the script of the movie, Papillon is an autobiography of Henri Charrière.
    It’s just a precision.

    I like that you do!

    Have a nice day.
