Wait, “Stand and Deliver”? Yes…”Stand and Deliver”.
It’s sixty years too late, but blacklisted Hollywood writer Dalton Trumbo has had his screenwriting credit restored to “Roman Holiday” by The Writer’s Guild of America. Truly an embarrassing time for America (as is any time in America when artists are marginalized), kudos to The Guild for making things right. It’s just a shame it took so long…
