Twenty-two years later, my dog-eared copy of Molly Haskell's "From Reverence to Rape" sits on the bookshelf with little hand-torn scraps of paper marking pages I wanted to go back to. All I have to do is glance at the first chapter, and I recall what an exhilarating experience it was to read Haskell's analysis of women in Hollywood, both on the screen and behind the scenes. There are scribbles in the margins of that book, because it almost demanded active participation from the reader.

In exploring the issue of respect and the Hollywood screenwriter ("Lip Service," March 25), Sean Mitchell neglects to mention the role of writers in film's silent period. Novelists, playwrights and scenarists played a crucial role in the early years of Hollywood. Many of the most powerful and highly paid screenwriters were women (Frances Marion, June Mathis and others), it was an era of bold experimentation in translating plays and novels to the screen (Erich von Stroheim's "Greed" and Mathis' "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse")

Out of the ashes of "Filmex" rises "The American Film Institute Film Festival of Los Angeles"--"AFIFEST" for short, to run through March 26. Yet there's a certain continuity. Filmex's last avid programmer, Ken Wlaschin, directs and programs AFIFEST (as he did earlier, and very successfully, for the London Film Festival). The bill of 90 or so films, as before, is a highly eclectic mix--definitely offbeat, definitely adventurous, studded with surprises and rediscoveries.

If women in Hollywood have made any inroads into what has always been a man's world--and empirical evidence says they have--you certainly wouldn't know it by picking up the latest copy of Vanity Fair. Outraged industry folks--males as well as females--say the magazine's current special issue on Hollywood is sexist and demeaning to women, who are largely depicted in suggestive high-fashion undergarments, or high-fashion designer-wear made to look like undergarments.
