In June 1950 Trumbo traveled east to surrender to federal authorities. He and John Howard Lawson were incarcerated at the Federal Correctional Institute in Ashland, Kentucky. Clearly angry and dispirited by the experience, Trumbo failed to complete his “big” historical novel. Money worries weighed heavily on him, and after his release, he resumed his black-market work and decided to move to Mexico.
