Why This Review?

RECEIVED Thu., Sept. 20, 2012

Dear Editor,
    I have no problem with your review of Gods Like Us [Screens, Sept. 21], Ms. Jones, but why? "A cultural biography of modern stardom" … is the Chronicle serious about this book? The emergence of Marlon Brando, TV, and rock & roll - talk about yesterday's news. Been done, have read. While Carl Rollyson's bio on Dana Andrews, Hollywood Enigma, hits the bookstores, the Chronicle blathers about Lindsay Lohan. Hey, I read the National Enquirer for Lindsay Lohan. Here's hoping the editors conjure better content on the cinema pages when the Austin Film Festival comes to town. Don't want the Hollywood wise guys to think we're dumb yokels. Do you?
