The "Hollywood Ten" are producers are writers that refused to testify at the House Un-American Activities Committee, following those events, they were blacklisted by Hollywood.

Which one is your favorite?

As unfortunate as it is, I am not familiar with any of the picture-less ones and while I don't pretend to be an expert, it's probable that I'm not the only one. Maybe there is another way (based on your idea of course) to pay tribute to the Hollywood Ten without making it a tsunami of votes for Dalton Trumbo?

I'm gonna think about it, it will be hard because Dalton Trumbo is the most known of them and he also has written the most popular films from all those screenwriters.

I think these men who sacrificed their careers are more celebrated for the body of honor they formed together than their respective body of work... so once we separate them from each other, their heroism is diluted and they become "forgotten" movie professionals... apart from Trumbo of course.

Even if I discard Trumbo, those writers and producers with no picture would stand no chance against the 2 others with a picture, 

If I delete Trumbo as well as the two others with a picture, I'm gonna have created the less voted poll of all time.

This poll is not very viable, but at this point, I posted it mainly because I was scared that someone does this idea before me again.

Basically, as a poll maker this poll is the best that I can do (in those circumstances). A poll with 95% of the votes of Trumbo would still be better and more commemorative than a poll with 2 votes overall.

I think you have three solutions:
- make it 4-option face-off: the first 3 vs. the others
- take each one's highest rated contribution and ask about the favorite.
- keep the poll that way, upload the men's pictures and list for each one their most popular work.

or 4...just consider this an honored tribute and discard the voting altogether by letting their memory remain together.......
