    • Mary Badham: (about Hollywood films today) As a mother, I want to take my children to the movies and not be embarrassed. I really believe independent films are going to save this country's film industry. People are tired of the 13-year-old boy jokes and foul language. You don't need to do that. To Kill a Mockingbird is full proof of that.
