The Color Green

January 18, 1987

How ironic that Nicholas Meyer, of all people, would be so outspoken about the colorization process, likening tampering with historic film works to "putting up condominiums in Central Park" ("A Very Colored View of Black & White Films," Jan. 4).

One would think that the man who has made a career out of trashing other people's literary characters (such as portraying Sherlock Holmes as a drug addict in "The Seven-Per-Cent Solution," killing off Mr. Spock in "Star Trek II," as well as the subsequent trashings of H. G. Wells and Jack the Ripper in "Time After Time" and the entire city of Lawrence, Kan. in "The Day After"), would feel that "anything goes" when pursuing the almighty dollar in Hollywood.

After all, he's proven it many times over.
