Footnotes to History

December 29, 1991

"I'm not hiding what I'm doing," Stone tells us. "We're putting out a screenplay which is highly footnoted as to our choices and sources so it can be studied and picked apart."

Stone may not be hiding what he is doing from those who secure the footnotes to the screenplay, but it is total sophistry to tender this as a justification for the license the dramatist has taken, which is not footnoted in the theater and provides for generations of folks a seemingly authoritative account of an extremely significant historical event.
