Navy Approval for Demi Moore Film Uncertain

The Washington Post reports that the Pentagon has not yet decided whether or not to aid production of "G.I. Jane," a new Demi Moore movie about the Navy. According to the Post, Moore has appealed directly to President Clinton to urge Pentagon approval of the project. The Pentagon often helps military-related movie productions with equipment or logistical assistance for reimbursement, especially if the movie will help recruitment efforts.

Putting aside the Post's sexist comment that the Moore film would help recruitment because "Hello? Demi Moore in a diving outfit? Roll the cameras," the Pentagon should see the movie as an boon for much-needed recruitment of women in the Navy.
