Photoplay, May 1939

Photoplay, May 1939

Completely not cartoon related, the following article, concerned with Gone With The Wind, is an interesting demonstration of the completely insane writing style that was apparently acceptable in 1939. The thing reads like it was written by a fawning drunk via telegram.

  1. there are definite stylistic differences to today's writing (actually sounds just like the newsreels of the 30s), but the fawning part sounds current to me!
