The Brave One is a 1956 Mexican-American Technicolor drama film directed by Irving Rapper and starring Michel Ray, Rodolfo Hoyos, Jr., and Elsa Cárdenas. It tells the story of a Mexican boy who tries to save his beloved bull Gitano from a battle against a champion matador.
The Brave One was the last film to win the Academy Award for Best Story before the award was discontinued, and was nominated for two other Academy Awards: Best Film Editing and Best Sound but was not a box office success.
The story credit was originally given to Robert Rich, a pseudonym used by Dalton Trumbo, who had been blacklisted as one of the Hollywood Ten in 1947 after he refused to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee. It was actually the name of the nephew of the film's producer Frank King and Robert Rich claimed authorship of the screenplay when initially asked about it, though his uncles denied this claim. The Academy Award was reissued in Trumbo's name in 1975.
