Picks and Pans Review: Betty Friedan
The women's-movement mover found Gandhi "really marvelous" but thought The Day After made for a better "political event" than TV movie. Friedan was also "outraged" that the six-member post-movie panel failed to include a woman. As for books, she enjoyed the sci-fi classic A Canticle for Leibowitz by Walter Miller Jr. about a post-nuclear war society—"It's 20 years old and really devastating to read now." While Friedan enjoyed the Chariots of Fire sound track, she confesses, "Who knows from records? My record player is broken."
