When I first saw this docudrama in 1980, I was intrigued by the story. I was very much surprised that the Saudi government made an issue of this film. In essence, what goes in their country stays in their country.

I will agree that keeping internal matters is a private affair for a country. However, I will also agree that we can disagree in what goes on in that country.

Saudi Arabia is telling us to mind our own business when it comes to the moral affairs within that kingdom. But, Saudi Arabia should mind its own business in telling us -- the Western world -- how to conduct ourselves when it comes to freedom of expression.

If there is a story to be told, then we will tell it.
