A WSJ obit for laser inventor Theodore H. Maiman (no link available) indicates that Hollywood stupidism isn’t a modern phenomenon:

He often told the story of meeting Bette Davis at a party. The movie star asked, “How does it feel to be responsible for all that death and destruction?” It took until the end of the evening for the reticent Mr. Maiman to formulate a reply: “I don’t know of anyone who’s been killed by a laser, even by accident, but I do know several people who have been healed by lasers.”
