Sheldon Teitelbaum's article on "Flowers in the Attic" indicates an unprofessional and uninformed knowledge of contemporary film production (Outtakes, Nov. 15).
Since the beginning of the film-making process, producers have previewed their films and today practically all films are subjected to in-depth preview evaluation so that general audience reaction to a film can be clearly established.
To give the impression that "Flowers" is a flawed film because we took out the overt incest and made other changes is unfair.
When a substantial majority of the audience, 75% of whom have read V.C. Andrews' book, object to incest on the screen, I think we have to deal with those scenes, and we did.
