If you managed to sit through The Crooked E for any length of time this past Sunday (about 20 minutes was all I could take), you might have noticed that pretty much all of the female employees portrayed at Enron were ex-strippers. Some women who actually did work at Enron are none too happy about that.
At a party the day after the movie aired, [Habiba] Ewing said, an older woman who had seen The Crooked E glanced at her chest.
"She asked me if my breasts were real," said Ewing, former director of international public relations.
The movie's producer gave them the standard Trent Lott apology:
Robert Greenwald, an independent distributor who produced The Crooked E for CBS, said, "I'm sorry if they feel that the movie in any way diminished them."
He said he and others tried to avoid painting women employees with a broad brush because their research had verified that there were "thousands of accomplished, articulate, competent women throughout Enron."
