Dear Margaret Mitchell and Leslie Howard,

To me, there is nothing more romantic than an epic love story. Call me a sap, but my February posts will focus on classics featuring couples destined to be together.  The ultimate example is Gone with the Wind, which really is a movie audiences should abhor. The story centers on the Old South with an idealistic pomposity that should be offensive to most forward-thinking Americans; instead, the film is overwhelmingly nostalgic. Both leads are devious and dishonorable, yet somehow their greed is understandable and their faults are endearing. Thank you for creating a flirt and a rogue who are more enduring and perfect for one another than the nicest of characters. If Rhett and Scarlett can find their one true loves amongst such turmoil, surely we mortals can do so as well.

Good night, Mun
