Letter to the Editor
To the editor:Bravo Peter Bart: Finally someone in Hollywood has the courage to say what needed to be said about “The Aviator.” It’s a whitewash. By concentrating on Hughes the womanizer, pilot, and moviemaker, and ignoring the last thirty years of Hughes’ life, Scorsese, DiCaprio, and screenwriter John Logan had the opportunity of a lifetime and they blew it. I too wish Warren Beatty had made his Hughes film. If “Reds” is any indication, it would have been a masterpiece.
