Trumbo’s investors did not provide adequate funds for the shoot, and they demanded that he rush the editing process so they could recoup their investment more quickly. Christopher worked closely with his father on the project. During the shoot, one of the extras wrote a distorted account of events that was sent to Esquire by Alvah Bessie, one of the Hollywood Ten. That act ended the friendship between the Bessies and Trumbos.
