While I can agree that this sort of thing goes on (and has gone on for years), I don't for one minute think of Joanna Cameron as abused or exploited. When she spoke to me on the phone, I detected none of that.

You must remember, she was still a co-ed when Woodstock and the free-love/sexual revolution stuff was going on. I don't think what little bit of nudity she was asked to do fazed her one bit.

As with a lot of things Hollywood, I think part of the reason her career didn't take off was just circumstances more than anything else. Remember in the interview, she felt she had a good agent when she was with the William Morris agency and stated regret that she later dropped them. Get tied up with a bad agent and you can drop off the radar fast!

If she'd stayed with William Morris, though, she might not have taken the ISIS gig.

By the way, I felt it was pretty obvious all that "Tonight Show" stuff was in jest. Certainly no more offensive than much of the banter on "Match Game" from the same era.

Where I DO feel she was discriminated against was when she tried to break into directing. At that time, there were few female directors and it was a bit of an "old boys" club.
