Jan and I were close friends and co-workers and would often go the the movies (a buck back then) and share the LARGEST bucket (sometimes more) of popcorn. One day we invited Dorothy to go see An Officer and a Gentleman. The theater was packed and a bit noisy but with the racy hotel scene the audience grew very quiet-Dorothy with her strong, sound carrying voice announces that she NEVER thought in her lifetime would she see such trash on the big screen! Jan and I slid as far down in our seats and hung our red heads while all of the movie goers turned in our direction looking to see who had "shared" her opinion with them! I remember we conferred any movie with a G or P/G were the highest rating that we would take her to in the future!
