In Reply to: BRAVO PRESS RELEASE -- MAJOR ERRORS posted by Adam on December 02, 1998 at 10:21:37:
: It is doubtful to assume that because BRAVO features the title "Lost Continent" on the press release, that it can be an assumed fact.
: The press release goes on to make a major error in attributing Spielberg as the director of POLTERGEIST. The director of that film was Tobe Hooper, and while Spielberg's contribution has always been controversial over that film (including front-page news in the Hollywood trades as well as intervention by the Director's Guild of America), such a glaring error surely discredits the accuracy of the BRAVO marketing department employee who drafted the press release.
No doubt they took their information for their press release right off of the IMDB, which lists both "Lost Continent" and "Poltergeist (Uncredited)" in Spielberg's Director credits. The people at Bravo should certainly know to check their facts beyond that source. Sloppy work.
