The Monday Muse. 3 hours and 58 minutes.


My Sunday was spent grappling with 3 hours and 58 minutes of film history.

As the sun was lost to the horizon and the light disappeared from the room, my tenacity was finally greeted with the line I had been waiting for. Eight of the most iconic words to be written since The Lumière brothers started this crazy craze known as filmmaking.

3 hours and 58 minutes of my Sunday afternoon spent and what did I learn?

Scarlett O’Hara is an imbecile.

10 Oscars?

Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.

    Preach it, sister! That’s a word from the Lord! Rhett Butler is no peach, either. The two of them were actually made for each other. I hope I never have to play bridge with people like that.

      You’re right, neither of them were peachy. And that moustache was just asking for trouble surely?

      Gone With the Wind. If only the title resembled the film’s fate, if it had been blown into obscurity I might have saved myself a few hours on a Sunday afternoon.
