Leonard Klady, by his own admission in his April 17 Outtakes item, was not present when I received the Press Award from the Publicists Guild. That should instruct his on the hazards of relying on second-hand information. Klady said I thanked God I was a journalist because otherwise I'd be working for Rogers & Cowan. What I actually said was, "I would like to thank those press agents who put up with me . . . not because they understood the tensions and stresses which did not quite justify my conduct, but because they had no other choice.

So Michael Keaton has been cast as Batman/Bruce Wayne (Cinefile, by Leonard Klady, June 26)? He might have made a good Joker, but his comic style, which he seems unable to shake (but can amplify), has doomed this promised "serious" treatment of Bob Kane's character to the same tired, boring level of artificial "camp" that made the TV series a hit yet simultaneously doomed it to an early cancellation. The painful lesson of "Superman III"--when you don't treat venerable superheroes with respect the audience rejects the property--has been ignored in this cynical, opportunistic attempt to capitalize on the success of "Beetlejuice" (same director, same star)

The movie "1969" is not the first in the wave of '60s films (" '1969': A Look at Coming of Age in Turbulent Times," by Leonard Klady, Feb. 28). The year 1968 came before 1969, and the feature " '68" opened in the San Francisco Bay Area last weekend, on its way to a national release. Independents count.

'Macu' Venezuela, 1987, 90 minutes , 10 p.m . As a pre-teen, the title character was forced into marriage with a local corrupt policeman. Now, years later, the difference in their ages and values has created an enormous rift in the relationship. The subject matter sustains an otherwise undistinguished and needlessly complex telling of this socio-political tale of Latin life and attitudes.--LEONARD KLADY

Regarding the "pain" Leonard Klady felt when the Samuel Goldwyn Co. dared to appropriate exactly eight words from a review he'd written of their film "Ping Pong" and used them as part of their advertising promotion, I sympathize with him ("Rolling the Credits--and Quotes," Sept. 6). Now try to imagine the pain felt by countless screenwriters over the years when an entire 120 pages of their words go uncredited in a movie review--a few of which, ironically, Klady himself may have been guilty of writing.

An April 3 blurb in Outtakes by Leonard Klady promised that Marcello Mastroianni's new film for John Boorman will contain the actor's "first" movie nude scene. Well, his first one since his last one, anyway. Mastroianni's previous collaboration with Boorman, "Leo the Last," contained a lengthy and well-publicized nude scene. Prior to that, his nude love scene in "La Grande Bouffe" was advertised as his first. This may have been true, since the one before that , in "Kiss the Other Sheik," revealed a body so lithe and muscular that one suspected the use of "stunt buns."
