Finally, poor misunderstood Adolf Hitler and Joe Stalin are going to get a fair break on television. Their makeover will come from -- who else? -- Oliver Stone, who's producing a 10-part series titled Secret History Of America to air on Showtime later this year. The Hollywood Reporter says that Stone told a group of TV critics on Saturday that "These people have been vilified pretty thoroughly by history." I know. Kill a few million Jews and people just think they can say anything about you. But Stone says his show will put Stalin and Hitler "in context." After which, maybe, he'll do series putting cancer, rabid pit bulls and Charles Manson in context, too.
Oliver Stone: Fair play for Hitler and Stalin!
