Abstract:

More than fifty years after the release of his enduring epic Spartacus, movie icon Kirk Douglas reveals the riveting drama behind making the legendary gladiator film. In the midst of a politically charged era when Hollywood's moguls refused to hire anyone accused of Communist sympathies, producer Douglas chose Dalton Trumbo, a blacklisted screenwriter, to write Spartacus. Writing from his heart and from his own meticulously researched archives, Douglas, at ninety-five, looks back candidly, often with sefl-effacing humor, at his audacious decision to give public credit to Trumbo, thus effectively ending the notorious Hollywood blacklist.
