Letters to the editor

IN YOUR Andy Marx piece on me in Friday’s paper, “sources” suggest I walked away from Paramount with $12-15 million.

Could your sources call me and tell me where that money was? I’ve looked everywhere and all I can find is an inflatable “Cool World” doll.

Seriously, I parted company here amicably with no settlement and no production deal. Mr. Marx was given a copy of my address to the employees that specifically stated this.
