(Frank wrote) The film was shot by Jack McKinney, the almost famous underwater cinematographer who died of AIDS. No, he wasn't gay; he loved some Asian ladies not wisely but too well while shooting on location.
With all the brouhaha about character assassination over the past few days, don't you think that this, too, is perhaps over the line? Wouldn't it have been sufficient to say, "The film was shot by Jack McKinney, the almost famous underwater cinematographer." (My recollection is that his family has always denied the AIDS claim and said he died of pneumonia.)
Just a thought . . . and perhaps a step back towards a kinder, gentler board???
