Episode 99. You’ve Probably Heard of this One Before

After nearly a hundred episodes, Alex and Jonathan finally get around to some of the biggest films in cinema history, specifically in the romance genre. We take a look at Gone with the Wind (1939), Casablanca (1942), and West Side Story (1961) and discuss the effect of the studio system on large budget productions, elements that make a successful movie beyond the studio system, and the timeless appeal of tragic romance.
