Credit Rating

September 20, 1987

Regarding the "pain" Leonard Klady felt when the Samuel Goldwyn Co. dared to appropriate exactly eight words from a review he'd written of their film "Ping Pong" and used them as part of their advertising promotion, I sympathize with him ("Rolling the Credits--and Quotes," Sept. 6).

Now try to imagine the pain felt by countless screenwriters over the years when an entire 120 pages of their words go uncredited in a movie review--a few of which, ironically, Klady himself may have been guilty of writing.
