Thank you so much for Ann Hornaday’s Perspectives commentary on today’s movies (“Movies Inspire Misogyny,” May 27). Truer words were never written about the state of Hollywood today.

My parents both worked for Warner Brothers in the Clark Building in the 1930s, and Dad worked there as a “booker” until the 1960s, then became a theater manager until 1973. So I was raised on movies, but there was a code of behavior for actors, directors, producers and others then, and you could take any child to see any movie. Family members could go to and enjoy the same film. The last time this happened with my family was viewing the film “Elf.” My children, grandchildren and I were all laughing at the same things at the same time in the theater row. We can no longer do this. There are no more such films in neighborhood theaters.

I have turned my back on Hollywood and have been fighting pornography for 30 years, during which time I met and became friends with former porn star Linda Lovelace, who fought porn later on.

Hollywood, clean up your act.
