The Word Is Ego

March 20, 1994

I'm sure it was not Daniel Cerone's fault, but there are many inaccuracies in his article "Expatriate Games" (March 6):

* I did not do any acting in the film "Day of Reckoning," nor was I ever interested in doing such. I was the co-creator and co-executive producer of this Paramount Studios-NBC movie.

* The article suggests my partner Stirling Silliphant and I are at "odds" over the production, the deal-making and the results of the final product. Nothing could be further from the truth. We are actively engaged in developing a new television series to be filmed on location in Paris. I never "sold away" our rights to the project against Stirling's wishes; as partners, we make all such decisions jointly.

* As for the "name" power of my getting projects financed, the long list of past, present and future projects speaks for itself.

Perhaps a better title for Cerone's article would have been "Ego Games"--one of the very reasons Stirling and I choose to write and produce outside the Hollywood system.
