Banned Film

"No Jane Fonda movie in this theater."

The owner of two Kentucky theaters has refused to show the new Jane Fonda film "Monster-in-Law."

Ike Boutwell says it's because of the activist role the actress took during the Vietnam War. Boutwell trained pilots during the Vietnam War.

He displayed pictures of Fonda clapping with a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft crew in 1972 outside the Elizabethtown Movie Palace to show his disapproval. The marquee outside Showtime Cinemas in nearby Radcliff reads: "No Jane Fonda movie in this theater."

Both theaters are just a few miles from the Army's Fort Knox, south of Louisville.
