Jesus Salvador Trevino's lament about the lack of Latino representation in Hollywood ("Missing From Hollywood's Big Picture: Latino Heroes," April 26) is a sober reminder that the Anglo cultural hegemony reflected in motion pictures is a subject that still demands attention, especially at a time when America is finally coming to grips with its multicultural heritage. My concern is that Trevino's rationale for more Latino inclusion could be perceived as having undertones of group resentment and/or envy of the modicum of progress African Americans artists have made in the entertainment industry.

Filmmakers, television producers, actors and political leaders sent a strong message Wednesday at a Screen Actors Guild symposium, insisting that the significant underrepresentation of Latinos in film and TV must change and that Hollywood executives need to pay attention to the country's changing demographics. The symposium was prompted by a SAG report released Wednesday titled, "Missing in Action: Latinos In and Out of Hollywood."

Luis Valdez, the writer and director of films including "La Bamba" and "Zoot Suit," once got turned away at the Universal Studios gate by a guard who mistook him for a food delivery man and sent him to the service entrance. "It was 1981, and I was cutting my own film on the lot," Valdez told about 200 people who attended a "Summit on Diversity" sponsored by the Directors Guild of America over the weekend. Valdez said he resented the guard's mistake but understood it.

How do you say "Beam me up, Scotty" in Spanish? I ask only half-jokingly. Because word is getting out among Latinos who are also fans of "Star Trek"--like me--that we're finally a big part of the science-fiction universe envisioned by the late Gene Roddenberry.

Marilyn Miller is virtually forgotten today, having made only three long-obscure early talkies before her death from blood poisoning in 1936 at the age of 37, but she had been Florenz Ziegfeld's shining singing and dancing star of the '20s. Her first film, "Sally" (1929), long thought lost, resurfaces at the Vagabond today and Wednesday in a respectable black-and-white print, duped from a two-strip Technicolor print apparently no longer extant.

Steven Spielberg opened the envelope and was about to read the name of this year's top award in film given out by the Directors Guild of America when he looked out into the crowd at Robert Zemeckis, the director of "Forrest Gump." "I've got a box of chocolates for you, Bob," said the smiling Spielberg, alluding to the now-famous line in "Gump."

As West Coast correspondent for the Cairo daily Al-Ahram, Soraya Abdoul Seoud seldom ventured across the river to Los Angeles' Eastside. "I was afraid to come to this area," Abdoul said Wednesday as she rode in a bus down bustling Cesar E. Chavez Avenue, one of the neighborhood's main drags. "All you hear about in the media is the negative side."
