Once upon a time, there was a great city on an island. The people who lived there woke up one morning to find out their city was broke. They asked everyone for help, even the president of the United States. He told them, in so many words, to drop dead. The people were very sad. Suddenly it was summer. And the city seemed, all at once, to go, well . . . a little crazy. Isn't that how a Disney movie tells a story?

Three months before its planned release, a graphic, startling cut of director Spike Lee's new film for Walt Disney Co.'s Touchstone Pictures, "Summer of Sam," has been deemed too racy to be released under an R rating, causing Lee to go back to the editing room to tone it down. Lee's original cut of the film, which chronicles how the 1977 killing spree of David Berkowitz (a.k.a. Son of Sam) affected one Italian American section of the Bronx, was shown to the Motion Picture Assn.
