To the editors:

May I correct a gaffe that crept into the last sentence of my review of Misery [December 7]? While I originally concluded that "'success' in a movie of this kind mainly boils down to successful counterfeiting," the phrase now reads, "'success' in a genre movie mainly boils down to successful counterfeiting"--an inadvertent charge that takes in musicals, westerns, and anything else that might be considered a genre movie. Actually, I was only referring to movies like Misery--psychological horror movies derived from Psycho--not genre movies in general.
