In 1947, Dalton Trumbo (Bryan Cranston) was Hollywood's top screenwriter until he and other artists were jailed and blacklisted for their political beliefs. TRUMBO (directed by Jay Roach) recounts how Dalton used words and wit to win two Academy Awards and expose the absurdity and injustice under the blacklist, which entangled everyone from gossip columnist Hedda Hopper (Helen Mirren) to John Wayne, Kirk Douglas and Otto Preminger.

Did You Know?
Throughout Dalton Trumbo's home in the suburbs, there are incorrect electricity receptacle outlets that take three-prong (grounded) plugs, that for the year 1959 should have been the (2-prong) non-grounding electricity receptacle outlets. Homes built before 1962 had most of their original 125 VOLT electricity receptacle outlets of the (2-prong) non-grounding type. In 1947, the NEC (USA) code first required grounding type (3-prong) receptacles for the laundry. In 1956 the required use of grounding type receptacles was extended to basements, garages, outdoors and other areas where a person might be standing on ground. From 1962 grounded outlets became required in American homes, because the NEC (USA) code was revised to require all branch circuits to include a grounding conductor or ground path to which the grounding contacts of the receptacle must be connected.
