Oliver Stone ’68

Oliver Stone ’68 left Yale after his freshman year, but his time on campus no doubt came in handy when he was creating scenes from George W. Bush’s Yale years in W., a film biography of the president that opened on October 17. Although Stone is known for an over-the-top style and leftish political leanings, he has been credited by some surprised critics with an “evenhanded” and even “sympathetic” portrayal of Bush in the film.
