With difficulty, Cleo Trumbo finally resolved the financial mess her husband had left behind. The family also struggled to ensure that Trumbo received screen credit for Roman Holiday and that Kirk Douglas did not get exclusive credit for “breaking the blacklist.” The Trumbos were gratified when a free-speech fountain at the University of Colorado was dedicated to Trumbo and when the citizens of Grand Junction embraced him and Eclipse. The “Dalton Gang” sponsored a sculpture of him—writing in his bathtub—that sits on Main Street in Grand Junction. A special Writers Guild committee restored many of his black-market credits.
