Making Taste

December 27, 1987

Rosenfield's article on Oliver Stone was headlined "A Moralist in Movieland."

An odd title for a man whose scripts for "Scarface" and "Platoon" contain the greatest number of obscenities ever spoken on film and who, after deriving immense wealth because of "Platoon," next attacks the unbridled capitalism of "Wall Street."

It might have been better for Stone to have stayed in his own backyard--Hollywood, whose money-grubbing deal-packagers make their New York brethren appear pale by comparison.
