Default Re: Should characters in "Captain America" smoke?

I voted "No".
Despite the widespread use of cigarettes in the 30's & 40's and the general ignorance of the harm they cause, I don't think they really need to show it to convey the time-frame.
I'm actually a smoker (albeit reluctantly at the present) and I don't necessarily agree with Hollywood's ban on cigs on film either, but if it isn't important to the plot, then why have it in the movie?
Besides, if I try to quit, that's THE LAST thing I want to see in a smoke-free theater...someone puffing away onscreen while I'm jonesin' for a drag! Lol!

It's a damn good time to be a comicbook fan!
