Standing By It

October 05, 1986

"A boring, foul-mouthed film, that glorifies the worst, not the best, of human nature" is how John Boland described the movie "Stand By Me" (Letters Annex, Sept. 28).

I find such a narrow-minded description of such a wonderful film more offensive than any "profanity" that appeared in the film.

"Stand By Me" is one of the most honest and realistic portrayals of childhood I've ever seen. If Boland can't handle such a true reflection of life on the screen, then I suggest he stick strictly to watching Spielberg movies.
