  1. I am so glad that you posters are so eager to discuss GWTW. Let me ask a question about the scene where Rhett warns the guests at Twelve Oaks about the superiority in numbers and supplies that the Northern states enjoy: were the Southerners really that reckless? Anybody with half a brain knows that you cannot win a war with mere bravado; you need trained fighting men, weapons, ammunition, supplies, the support of the civilian population--in short, the kind of armed forces that every country that is serious about its self defense is careful to maintain in full functionality.

  2. You will win a lot more friends and a lot more arguments with a less abrasive hostile attitude.

    I take movies real seriously, which is why I like to listen to the discussions with people such as Drew Barrymore about what makes a particular movie something special. GWTW won a Best Picture award, so one has to assume it is something special.

    As for world peace and world hunger, I leave that to HH the Pope and other influential people, since I myself am currently unemployed and have to concentrate on getting a job in order to move out of the house of my sister, with whom I have to live because I have no income other than food stamps--a very humiliating situation indeed.

  3. Osborne will obviously try to sound knowledgeable, but chances are very good his so-called commentary will be nothing but inane trivia about such silliness as the fact that every 30s movie star wanted to play Scarlett, and how GWTW was the first movie ever broadcast by TCM.

    Real deep commentary about what makes GWTW special and worthy of this tribute will be sadly absent, unless Osborne gets serious!

  4. Regarding one of your hosts for your next cruise, do you recall a time when Herr Bikel's plane was taken hostage, and Bikel kept up the spirit of the passengers by singing and playing the guitar? I think Sam Jaffee--Dr Zorba of BEN CASEY--was another of the hostages in that situation.

  5. I want very much to watch that movie again, since it is an interesting question whether 'tis what most people would call a horror movie, as there is nothing supernatural in it.

    Which brings me to one of my favourites, HOUSE OF WAX. Professor Jarrod is ultimately a sympathetic tragic character, as he goes insane trying to create the truly perfect beauty.
