The brilliant Maggie Gallagher asks a key question: Is Hollywood Next? By that, she mentions the very real -- and long overdue -- possibility that the movie market for sexual titillation has been saturated (how's Kinsey doing, by the way?) and there's a place for more wholesome fare. She could be right -- but here's hoping they don't remake one of my favorites. It's just right the way it is.

I think you're onto something here and I hope you're right. With the enormous holiday success of films like National Treasure and The Incredibles there is an untapped market out there for films that are more family-friendly or at the very least don't bombard viewers with sex and violence. If Hollywood executives really paid close attention to what translates to box office success they might think twice about some of the films they make.

By way of tooting my own horn let me say this on the matter of Hollywood: I believe the Hollywood Machine is dying by inches. But independent film- and movie-makers are moving in to take over this apparent death.

This last year I was involved in two writing competitions, whose singular intent was to discovery and promote writing talent that can tell a good story, and did we. Oy. Now it becomes a matter of getting them into position to tell these wonderful tales.
