Despite the fact that much of Trumbo's work was plainly patriotic, his brief association with the American Communist Party prompted years of persecution. In the clip below, Cranston justifies how a person like Trumbo could simultaneously be both a communist and a patriot.
Now you may think it a fool's errand to try to pair anything with Netflix's upcoming Pee-Wee's Big Holiday. Fortunately, the flick and the wine industry share someone in common: Tara Buck.
