The Brave One

July 14, 2019 @ 2:00 pm

Hendersonville Film Society presents the 1956 film The Brave One, which tells the story of a Mexican boy who tries to save his beloved bull Gitano from a deadly duel against a champion matador. The story’s author is Dalton Trumbo, whose life story was told in the 2015 movie Trumbo starring Bryan Cranston. Trumbo was blacklisted for refusing to testify before McCarthy’s House Un-American Activities Committee. His name ruined, Trumbo came up with the story of The Brave One, but the producers would only make the film if Trumbo changed his name, which he did to Robert Rich. The film won the Academy Award for Best Writing. In 1975, the movie was reissued with Trumbo’s name. Donations are appreciated.
