'Dalton Trumbo had gone from novelist to a successful career as a Hollywood screenwriter which saw him become one of the town's highest paid writers and even earn an Academy Award nomination. But his bright career came to a crushing end in 1947 after he was one of nine people who refused to testify in front of the House Committee on Un-American Activities. This led to Trumbo being blacklisted from Hollywood and effectively ending his movie career. But despite being blacklisted Trumbo refused to give up and instead continued to write, often under pseudonyms, working on films such as Oscar winner Roman Holiday.

Minute for minute, the three-hour Degree of Guilt is possibly the worst film I've ever seen. It's literally endless, padded mercilessly with innumerable, meaningless subplots, all so we can find out who killed the antagonist -- a murder which doesn't occur until halfway through the movie! (Presumably this was the cliffhanger to get people to watch the second night of this dog.)
