Give Levinson his due

May 1, 2014

I enjoyed reading the article about Paul Reiser (“Still Funny After All These Years,” April 25), and I look forward to seeing and hopefully meeting him at BHC’s Night of the Stars. However, having gone to school with film director Barry Levinson and having followed his climb to fame, I respectfully point out that “Diner” was not the first of a trilogy tribute to Baltimore, as stated in the article, but the first of his four films about his hometown. The others were “Tin Men,” “Avalon,” and “Liberty Heights.”

It’s comforting to know that Baltimore “will always hold a special place in Paul Reiser’s heart.” Perhaps some of us will be able to show him why we feel the same way.
