Producer Saperstein, referring to the ongoing controversy of the colorization of original black-and-white films, castigates those artists he calls self-appointed auteurs who claim creative involvement on their motion pictures.
Saperstein labels creative talent as mere employees, as well as a bunch of hypocrites who fail to give producers a day's work for a day's pay.
Based on Saperstein's past record and experience as a "producer" of films, it is puzzling what makes him believe he should sit in judgment of auteurship and creativity?!
For the record, the following titles summarize Saperstein's film credentials:
"War of the Gargantuas," "Invasion of the Astros," and "What's Up Tiger Lily." This trio was simply purchased for U.S. distribution by Saperstein from their original Japanese producers. The balance of Saperstein's contributions to the entertainment industry and primarily TV cartoons, including "Mr. Magoo."
