In 1955, he established Bryna Productions , which began producing films as varied as Paths of Glory (1957) and Spartacus (1960). In those two films, he starred and collaborated with the then relatively unknown director, Stanley Kubrick . Douglas helped break the Hollywood blacklist by having Dalton Trumbo write Spartacus with an official on-screen credit, although Trumbo's family claims he overstated his role. He produced and starred in Lonely Are the Brave (1962), considered a cult classic, and Seven Days in May (1964), opposite Burt Lancaster , with whom he made seven films. In 1963, he starred in the Broadway play One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest , a story he purchased, and which he later gave to his son Michael Douglas , who turned it into an Oscar-winning film .

A person who is no longer favored or welcome: “After my angry words with the manager, I am persona non grata at the video store.” From Latin , meaning “an unacceptable person.”
