Om Dalton Trumbo og McCarthyismens sortlistning.


Den amerikanske forfatter – og filmmanuskriptforfatter – Dalton Trumbo var en af de få kendte i filmindustrien, der nægtede at angive navne til HUAC (House Un-American Activities Committee), der jagtede kommunister og sympatisører i 1940/1950’ernes McCarthy-tid i USA.

I filmindustrien blev gruppen af ikke-samarbejdsvillige (dvs. principfaste demokrater) kendte om “The Hollywood Ten”, og deres sortlistning blev først ophævet fra 1960, ikke mindst fordi Dalton Trumbo brød sortlistningen ved at skrive manuskript til storfilmen “Spartacus” under eget navn.

Han er biografaktuel i Danmark netop nu (februar 2016) med filmen “Trumbo”  (se omtale på Kino.dk).

The american author and screenwriter Dalton Trumbo (1905-1976) was one the best known of those in the US film industri, that refused to testify before the HUAC,  and subsequently was blacklisted, and worked (1947-) under pen names.
