(An article from ex-SDS geezer Eric Mann complaining that "Trumbo"
defames the CPUSA. If this guy had anything to do with the making of the
film, it would have gone straight to video. Just read his leaden prose
and you'll see how little he understands about storytelling, a sine qua
non for film-making.)
The film goes out of its way to portray Dalton Trumbo and his
compatriots in the CP as simply good people who wanted jobs and justice
and had nothing to do with the Soviet Union. This is an anti-communist
lie. Joining the CPUSA had everything to do with the Soviet Union.
Communist cadre would tell Black and white working people and yes,
writers and intellectuals, “The Soviet Union is the first workers state.
They tell you socialism and revolution are not possible but look, the
Soviet workers did it, we can do it too? And look. The U.S. does not
want the Soviet Union to last and will not really fight to defend the
Soviet Union They want the Nazis to defeat the socialist experiment
which is why they won’t open up a second front in World War II. Join the
party. Defend the Soviet Union. Demand that the Democrats and Roosevelt
open up that second front.”
