. . . Backstage at the Oscars, producer Arnold Kopelson attributed much of "Platoon's" success to teen-agers who like the pic: "They're tired of seeing teen movies. They don't want coming-of-age stories. . . . They want things they can think and talk about." Hmmmm. Kopelson's Film Packages Inc. helped package and produce . . . "Porky's."
. . . If the movie academy felt strongly enough about Ralph Bellamy's contributions as an actor to give him an Oscar for his body of work (65 years!), why didn't we get any clips of his films? A dreadful oversight. (Academy officials apparently were resting and nobody could answer our quibble.)
