"Others were blacklisted until their deaths. Dalton Trumbo's name reappeared on the screen in 1960, but Al Levitt still had to employ a pseudonym when he wrote The Monkey's Uncle for Disney in 1965 (he used his young son's given names, Tom August, which created some confusion when the studio called in the early evening to discuss script changes only to be told by his mother that their scriptwriter had gone to bed), and his own name never appeared on the screen after 1953." (Thom Andersen: Blacklisted, in: Blacklisted. Movies by the Hollywood Blacklist Victims, Viennale Retrospektive 2000, Wien 2000, S.12.)
