Title:Protestors demand freedom for the Hollywood Ten, Los Angeles, 1950
Date:1950
Description:

Photograph of some of the members of the Hollywood 10 and their supporters demanding that the 10 be released from jail. The 10 screenwriters and film makers were jailed for their refusal to cooperate with the House Committee on Un-american Activities during the committee's probe of Hollywood communists. Among those in the photograph are Hollywood 10 members Lester Cole, third from left; Dalton Trumbo, fourth from left; Ring Lardner Jr., fourth from right; and Herbert Biberman, second from right. Two of Trumbo's children stand next to Trumbo, holding a picket sign calling for their father's release from jail. The man lighting the cigarette, standing third from right, is attorney Ben Margolis who defended the Hollywood 10 during their lengthy and unsuccessful legal fight to overturn their convictions for contempt of HUAC. According to the Nikola Trumbo's (a child at the time--daughter of Dalton Trumbo) note dated by November 2013, the people in the photograph are: from left to right--an unidentified woman, Lester Cole (one of the 10); an unidentified woman; Alvah Bessie; Dalton Trumbo; Nikola Trumbo; Albert Maltz (behind and between Nikola and Christopher); Christopher Trumbo; Cleo Trumbo; Frances Lardner; Ring Lardner, Jr.; Ben Margolis, attorney for the 10; Herbert Biberman; an unidentified woman
