Rambo's 'Un-Macho' Image

June 18, 1988

I'm not surprised in the least at the new "un-macho" ad campaign for "Rambo III" ("John Rambo--Mr. Sensitive?," by Nina J. Easton, June 10).

This sort of thing is apparently the latest trend among run-of-the-mill film makers, and it is hardly for the better.

I think it's safe to say that we thinking women want well-made, well-written, good-looking films with coherent plots.

Which is why I won't go to see "Rambo III" (whose makers apparently don't think too highly of their male audiences either--"action-loving male degenerates"?). I urge others to do the same.
