The chapter covers the 1950s. From 1952-55, Milestone lived and worked abroad (based in Paris) to escape the hostile Blacklist atmosphere. In England he shot Melba, a feature about Australian opera singer Nellie Melba, played by American Patrice Munsel. In Cyprus he directed They Who Dare, a feature about a British raid on Nazi airfields in the Mediterranean, starring Dirk Bogarde and Akim Tamiroff. In Italy he shot La Vedova X (The Widow), a minor film about a romantic-sexual triangle. In 1958 Gregory Peck engaged Milestone to direct Pork Chop Hill, depicting a futile operation by American soldiers during the last days of the Korean War, starring Peck as a conflicted commander.
