Personal Quote:

[on Dalton Trumbo] There is no question that [he] had talent for much greater literary work than the film work that he produced. The reason he never did what he could have done was this obsession of his with making money and living in a grand manner.

Trivia:

His father was an immigrant from Lithuania, and his mother an immigrant from Poland. See more »
