Cranston was just as worthy of last years Oscar as DiCaprio was. Early on they show John Wayne as a bully but later in the movie he goes to bat for pinko Edward G Robinson after Robinson names names. Good movie although there's a scene where Hedda Hopper tells Mayer that if he doesn't fire the traitors she will remind her readers who runs Hollywood. There is a TV move from almost 20 years ago where W.R. Hearst threatens Mayer that if he and other producers don't do more to make that new Orson Wells movie go away he will remind his readers who runs Hollywood. Perhaps both threats were true but I doubt it.
