Ben Affleck has altered the postscript of his movie about the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis after friends of Ken Taylor, former ambassador to Iran, complained about the insulting portrayal of the Canadian hero.

Taylor confirmed this change with political affairs specialist John Stall, Wednesday.

It’s one of those shining moments in time for Canadians — the heroic efforts of Taylor helped six Americans escape during the hostage crisis.

However, the movie version of the crisis, “Argo,” gave all the credit to the Central Intelligence Agency and diminished Taylor’s and Canada’s role in the hostage escape.

It was screened at the Toronto International Film Festival, but friends of Taylor were horrified at how the Canadian was portrayed, and took action.

As it turns out, their efforts have been rewarded.

Affleck has called Taylor, invited him down to Hollywood, put up a private screening and agreed to change the ending postscript to more accurately reflect Taylor’s and Canada’s role.
