Truly sad results.

Seen the movie. Wouldn't recommend you see it on a full stomach – it'll take your appetite away pretty quickly. Very well done job for what it was trying to do.

Just saw a live performance of it last night. Very moving.

Saw the movie-- never read the book; ditto the appreciation of darthfozzywig.

Saw the movie years ago … never read the book …

There seemed to be no space for "read it, but wish I never had--or any other piece of Dalton Trumbo propaganda, either."

I read the book in High School decades ago. It was as it should be a tough read of a tough subject.
