Let me break this to you gently, MOVIES AREN'T REAL!
And give me a break, if the Hollywood 10 hadn't been scribbling for the movies they'd never have bothered turning them into movie heroes. Movie people, show people, theatrical and other writers.... they always turn their own into heroes even when they're in no way heroic.
Let me know when they do a big, splashy Hollywood-feel-good-about-itself movie about the 13 who were killed in the Night of the Murdered Poets plus the guy who died in prison. Let me know when they do the fifth one. Maybe I'll do a search and compare how much was written in the self-absorbed lefty magazines of America about the 13 who were murdered after they'd been tortured for years as compared to the guys who had the horrible fate of. after getting out of their short sentences in country-club prisons for contempt having to get fronts for their scripts for a few years. And the irony of it is that those murdered 13 were Communists who had supported the same Stalinism that the rich, First Amendment protected American scribblers never stop romanticizing. Only they had to stop pointing out that it was Stalin who those guys adored in the 30s - 50s.
I should search to see if any of the Hollywood 10 scribblers ever wrote about the 13 dead writers and what they said about them. If anyone who so mightily objects to what I said can point me to anything they wrote that condemned the murders of their fellow writers by the same Stalin and his thugs who they, their party and their comrades carried water for, I'll post it.

It's my experience that, in almost all cases, a first rate movie is about on the same level as a third-rate book but they're a lot more profitable because crap that's easier to consume than a good book will get a bigger audience. And I doubt anyone expected to get sex for bringing anyone to the books.
Update 3: Oh, come on, Simps, you use my jokes, passing them off as your own. I've seen you do it.
