  • More details on this film at the Internet Movie Database


The only film directed by prolific screenwriter and author Dalton Trumbo. Trumbo was one of the Hollywood 10 and managed to win 2 Oscars whilst blacklisted! Went on to script Spartacus, Papillion and many other classics. Johnny Got His Gun is from his own novel and script and has been remade as well as turned into a play. A searing antiwar indictment.
