After we saw the film “Trumbo”we became interested in some of the films he had written.
Trumbo was a member of the “Hollywood Ten,”  because he refused to testify before congress regarding his communist ties he was black listed until the early 60s.
Unable to find work in California he moved to Mexico city and continued to write screen plays. He used a pseudonym or other writers as a front. It was during this period he wrote the screen play for “Roman Holiday.” In 1993 Trombo was posthumously awarded an Oscar for this screen play.
