HOW MORALS AND PRIORITIES CHANGE

HOW MORALS AND PRIORITIES CHANGE
By Fred Wickert


I never paid a lot of attention to movies and things of the industry. I have not even seen a movie in a movie theater for more than thirty years. That is about how much interest I have in the motion picture business.

That being said, I did pick up a few things now and then. I am an avid watcher of TV news and of course the TV news always shows whatever is going on in Hollywood and on Broadway. Whenever things like the Oscars come they spend some time on it. All the other similar type things are reported on.

When the Cannes Film Festival comes around every year they spend some time on it too. They show and interview some of the film makers and they do the same with actors and actresses, directors and producers.

It used to be the Cannes Film Festival was a serious event and the people attended in appropriate attire. Today they were reporting on the Cannes Film Festival and it seems there have been some changes in what is considered proper attire.

It was reported that some young actresses were denied entrance because they did not have on high heels. They were wearing flats. Evidently, it is now mandatory that all females to gain entry must be wearing high heels. If they are wearing very little else, that is not important. Nobody cares just as long as they are wearing high heeled shoes with it.

There is also a requirement for men. They must be wearing traditional tuxedo type black shiny shoes. They can come clad in no more than a jock strap with metal cup, as long as they have shiny black Tuxedo style shoes. If they present themselves wearing a Tuxedo and black loafers, they will be denied entry.

It makes you wonder what this world is coming do, doesn't it?
