'Schindler's List' Producer Laments Hollywood 'Depravity'

By    |   Tuesday, 17 Jun 2014 11:15 AM

One of the Oscar-winning producers of "Schindler's List" publicly slammed Hollywood's "depravity" this week, blaming the industry for causing "much damage to America."

In a letter sent to 866 Christian and conservative leaders, Gerald Molen bashed some Hollywood filmmakers, but extolled others for the recent rash of faith-based movies.

"As a member of the Hollywood community, I have been part of an industry that has unwittingly and yes, even wittingly, caused much damage to America and to the world, and I am well aware of the blight that has too often been the result of such actions," Molen wrote in a letter forwarded to The Hollywood Reporter.

"Throughout my years in Hollywood, I tried to live my life differently and be a part of projects that I would be proud to have my grandchildren watch," Molen wrote. "It hasn't been easy, but I've at least tried to stand against the tide of depravity that has too often flourished there."

Molen's letter also aimed to promote his new film "America," billed as Dinesh D'Souza's follow-up to "2016: Obama's America." It is due out July 2.

"There is a certain irony in the release date of 'America.' It just happens to fall on the 10th anniversary of the release of the most successful political documentary in history. I do not feel it proper for me to name the film or the filmmaker for a film based on half truths and deliberate obfuscations of facts," Molen wrote, referring to Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11."

Recipients of Molen's letter include former President George W. Bush and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal; TV and radio hosts Hugh Hewitt and Mike Huckabee; religious leader Franklin Graham; and some actors, such as Patricia Heaton, according to The Reporter.
