A Crazy Parallel

September 12th, 2013 | Category: Opinions,Random Thought

Okay, I’m going to draw a direct parallel between Clark Gable and… Woody Allen.

In Love and Death, Woody Allen’s Boris finds out from his giddy comrades that Russia is going to war with France. Boris comments on the absurdity of war, how it’s ultimately just a bunch of dead people. He relents and becomes an unlikely war hero.

In Gone with the Wind, Clark Gable’s Rhett is also upset that his fellow Southerners are so excited to go to war, totally naive to the ugliness of death. He also becomes an unlikely war hero.

There you have it, my strange drawing of a parallel across two starkly contrasting classic films.
