Dalton Trumbo and Kirk Douglas share December 9 as their birthdays, but this fact wasn't addressed in the movie.
I make crap films. You are way too good and too expensive to write for me.
When the Oscar is presented for Best Screenplay at the 1954 Awards the presenter says, "And the Oscar goes to..." This phrase was not used by presenters until the 61st Academy Awards in 1989. In the 1950s the presenter would have said, "And the winner is..." when presenting an Oscar.
As the credit scroll begins, photos of the real Dalton Trumbo, his family and other people portrayed in the film are shown. These are followed by historical footage of Trumbo giving an interview (from the same one where he acknowledges that he is 'Robert Rich').
