And an Apology to Jagger, Too

It's been brought to my attention that a charge I made in my piece on Luis Bunuel (November 10) about the final sequence in the 1970 documentary Gimme Shelter may well be false. I said the action was faked, attributing my information to cinematographer Alan Raymond. Raymond says he has no recollection of having made the accusation. My apologies to Raymond, the filmmakers, and the other participants. Certainly there are plenty of documentaries guilty of fakery, including a few great ones--Nanook of the North and Land Without Bread both come to mind--so I should have picked a more appropriate example.
