    What happened to listed american masters on Sept. 3 @ 3:00 p.m.? Re: Trumbo

  • Bob

    The one speech I wanted to hear again and have a copy of it was the Eulogy by Ring Lardner at Trumbo’s funeral. Is it available anywhere?

  • Storm Smith

    To Bob,
    I have found a PDF document of a script that Christopher Trumbo wrote for a play about his father variously interspersed with letters which he wrote, and interviews, and sequences involving HUAC. The entire play is not there, but plenty of it is there with Dalton’s wit firmly intact and largely uncut. Ring Lardner’s Eulogy is at the beginning of the play. scroll down past the preface and it should be there.

    This is the site:

    I couldn’t hyperlink it for you but it’s something. Hope you receive this. It’s there for anyone who’s interested.
