My op-ed on the Olivia de Havilland v. FX Networks lawsuit, currently on appeal in California, has been published by the Los Angeles Times and will appear in Sunday's print edition just in time for this year's Oscar's ceremony.  If de Havilland succeeds, movies that tell unuathorized stories about real people may be a thing of the past. Something that would have left current and recent Oscar contenders and winners off the screen.  Oral arguments in the case will take place on March 20th.
