He was sentenced to one year in prison but after having spent a few months in jail, Dmytryk, badly needing money as he went through a divorce, announced he was ready to name names. After his prison release he did testify, named names and was subsequently removed from the blacklist, the only of the Hollywood Ten to do so. He would go on to a mildly distinguished career as a director making such movies as The Caine Mutiny, Broken Lance, The Young Lions, The Carpetbaggers, Mirage, Alvarez Kelly and Shalako. Despite steady employment, Dymtryk was quietly ostracized by fellow filmmakers who never forgave him for talking. In the mid 70's directing offers dried up so he took to teaching until he retired. He died in 1999.
