"The blacklist was a time of evil...no one on either side who survived it came through
untouched by evil...[Looking] back on this time...it will do no good to search for
villains or heroes or saints or devils because there were none; there were only victims."
Dalton Trumbo. Laurel Award acceptance speech delivered to the Writers Guild of America West, as
reprinted in The Writers Guild of America Newsletter. April 1970.
