August 28, 1988

I'm extremely disappointed in the TV Times "one-check" rating of the film "Amazing Grace and Chuck," which aired on Home Box Office. While this film may be somewhat corny and syrupy, the values it espouses and the individual initiative it encourages merit the highest rating and honor. I am certain you are aware that such a poor rating can result in a significant reduction in potential viewership of a particular film. This is a considerable power which carries a corresponding responsibility. When the poorest rating is given to worthless fluff, you perform a service. But when you (poorly) rate a film with the integrity and fine spirit embodied by this film, you are doing a disservice to the young people, parents and viewers in this city.
