Tsk tsk. Those letters of rage at your having printed a major story about that old softie, Sylvester Stallone (Calendar Letters, Sept. 21).
Surely it can't have been sheer coincidence that the same issue of Calendar also provided an article about the Wunderkind of long ago, MGM's Irving Thalberg.
It was the movies in microcosm: Thalberg to Stallone. From the sublime to the ridiculous.
