To the editor:

I enjoyed your article on the documentary Frank Yankovic: America's Polka King (calendar page, February 24). The article says that the producer was able to tell the story of Yankovic's life with technical help from myself and others. But somehow completely missing was any mention of the film's director, Rees Candee--who, along with editor Trent Haynes, was the real creative and technical force behind the production. Credit is certainly due.
