Blacklisting?[edit]

I removed the following paragraph added by an anonymous editor:

INTERESTING NOTE: Malina complained that she was not offered a chance to reprise her role (as "Grandmama") in the second Addams Family movie, Addams Family Values, because it had come to light that she did not support the Persian Gulf War in 1991, and had offended, among others, the Teamsters, while filming The Addams Family, for possibly using injudicious language. She said that the film's stars, Angelica Huston, and the late Raul Julia, had refused to take up her cause or defend her to the powers that be. She may, in fact, have indeed been the first victim of a new brand of "blacklisting", as Danny Glover nearly did, as well, due to his public opposition to the Republican Party and its policies, and to the war in Iraq.

First of all, you don't put "INTERESTING NOTE" in an encyclopedia article; the whole thing should be interesting. But more importantly I can't find any source for the claim that she made such a complaint. It could well be, but I don't think it's general knowledge and if appeared in print somewhere then we need to cite it, otherwise it's potentially inflammatory. And even if she did say it, that last sentence ("She may, in fact, have indeed been the first victim...") takes sides in a way that we have no business doing. ←Hob 00:10, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

- No idea who wrote it. Clearly needs a citation to a source. Otherwise it is an assertion made by the writer alone. And the tone of the writing is far from NPOV. BasicSignature 04:12, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Reordering necessary[edit]

The Personal Life section (or much of the information in it) needs to precede the Career section, in which Beck and the Living Theatre suddenly appear as though already mentioned. Kostaki mou (talk) 16:38, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
