The Movies Used to Be Great Medicine.

A little Sunday reading and a call to arms.

Screenwriters, upon returning from your strike, give us proof of your worth — earn the DVD receipts. Bring back the sophistication and wit of the screwball comedies of the 1930’s and the battles-of-the-sexes of the 40’s and 50’s. We will revere your names and add them to the pantheon studied in film schools and written about in newspapers ever after. Study the classics and bring them into the modern era. Give us your all.

Dear readers, please list your favourites so that we may add them to our libraries and Netflix queues. Because sometimes there is no substitute for the real thing.
