    Jane may have hated the movie, but she worked to promote it. I did a radio
    interview with her in conjunction with the Atlanta opening. She brought
    along Len Chandler, a young black guy who was also in the film, and
    insisted he be included. This annoyed me as a journalist, but as an
    activist I thought it was cool.
