Veteran producer Jay Weston from Los Angeles writes the 1/16/94 New York Times Sunday Magazine: "Many of my colleagues in the motion-picture community join me in condemning the unconscionable behavior portrayed in your article about Scott Rudin. In featuring him so prominently, you represent this sad, tortured (and torturing) individual as representative of what it takes to achieve success in the film industry.

"It may be counter-productive for my personally (since it's also a vengeful industry), but I can't help reflect on those powerful studios executives, directors, agents and performers who seem to condone and encourage such excessive outbursts by this enfant terrible."

After his letter came out, Jay produced only a TV movie in 1999.
