I’m certainly not a fan of the politics of Dalton Trumbo - and he deserved what he got - but he was an excellent writer. Lonely Are the Brave is a beautiful movie about the lone American spirit. Kirk and his horse, Whiskey, gave performances for the ages.

Agreed. And what about that truck driver...Carroll O’Connor?

Interestingly (or not), Trumbo also co-wrote the screenplay for one of my favorite Steve McQueen films - Papillon.

And, of course, he wrote what I consider to be the single most terrifying novel ever written - Johnny Got His Gun. The first time I read it, there were times when I had to put the book down and go outside for air.
