Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, who died Sunday at age 76, represented one of the most famous miscarriages of justice in recent American history: He served 19 years in prison for three murders before his convictions were set aside. But the former middleweight boxer also figured prominently in a Hollywood drama, this one focused on how negative publicity can destroy an Academy Awards campaign and how studios in the years that followed mastered the art of heading off Oscar criticism before it was too late.

The class is called "Writing About Ideas," but not a single student asked me about Nash's Nobel Prize-winning work. What they most wanted to hear was tabloid fare. That brought home just how far from reality the discussion about Nash has gone.
