GONE WITH THE WIND
1939, Warner Bros., 222 min, Dir: Victor Fleming

Southern vixen Scarlett O'Hara (Vivien Leigh) only has eyes for sensitive Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard) - but wise-cracking hellraiser Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) is determined to win her heart, even if that means surviving the burning of Atlanta, the destruction of Scarlett's beloved Tara and the overthrow of the Old South itself. Costarring Olivia de Havilland.


PLATOON
1986, MGM Repertory, 120 min, Dir: Oliver Stone

Oliver Stone brings his own Vietnam War experiences to the big screen embodied in Pvt. Taylor (Charlie Sheen) in what stands as one of the definitive portraits of men at war. Well-intentioned Willem Dafoe and demonic Tom Berenger are flip sides of the same coin, two feuding sergeants and elder-brother role models who will take Sheen through his nightmarish trial by fire. Forest Whitaker is also among the ranks. Won Oscars for Best Picture and Director.
