TEXT/PLAIN (29 lines)
Ed Johnson-Ott writes for Nuvo Newsweekly in Indianapolis.  A quote of
his about _Trekkies_ was run in the national ad.  Last night his colleague
told me he was gay (though it wan't a surprise), but I don't remember why
she told me that.  Maybe it was when we were discussing that I'd read in
_Video Watchdog_ that those who knew James Whale think he would have been
outraged at the camp excesses of _Gods and Monsters_, which was so poorly
marketed here I didn't get to see it (it played for two weels with ads
pointing to the wrong theatre).

I always thought it was kind of silly attaching some of the most artistic
cinematic work compared to an aesthetic regarded with scorn.

Certainly, but the style of editing and use of crosscutting may influence
the name-tossing.
