While working on the Spartacus script, Otto Preminger asked Trumbo to write the script for Exodus. Preminger publicly announced that Trumbo would receive screen credit. (The announcement that Trumbo would also receive screen credit for Spartacus came seven months later.) Thus, at the end of 1960, Trumbo’s name was on the screen twice, for two hugely successful films. This feat provoked a slow weakening of the blacklist, but blacklistees returned to work in a trickle, not a wave.
