Starring Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn, “Roman Holiday” won three Academy Awards, including Best Actress, Best Costume Design and blacklisted writer Dalton Trumbo’s Best Screenplay—which was not credited to him.  Bryan Cranston plays the irascible screenwriter, who eventually fought off the Hollywood blacklist— thanks to fearless Kirk Douglas (“Spartacus”) and Otto Preminger (“Exodus”)— in Jay Roach’s biopic “Trumbo,” which is holding its own at the crowded fall awards season box office.
