Financially, the Mexican adventure proved unsuccessful, and Trumbo had a very unhappy experience writing a script for Herbert Biberman. But in another respect, it laid the foundation for Trumbo’s campaign against the blacklist. While in Mexico, he conceived the story and wrote the script for The Brave One. He also watched from afar as one of his black-market scripts, Roman Holiday (fronted by his close friend Ian Hunter), enjoyed unqualified success. He returned to the United States in early 1953, determined to wage an unrelenting battle against the blacklist.
