“Gone with the Wind” is the movie they don’t want you to see. Following HBO pulling it from streaming services and then putting it back up with a ridiculous health warning, Spencer Klavan insists on rewatching it. In this episode of “Young Heretics” Klavan proves why the movie is not just a masterwork, but a triumph of American culture in the best traditions of Western art, and a tragedy in the true sense of the word.

    Excellent look at Gone With the Wind. I try, try, try to convince my husband that Lincoln is speaking of America’s punishment in the second Inaugural Address but he thinks it is all about the South. Maybe someday. Thanks for this and Young Heretics in general.

    Ricochet Audio Network: Following HBO pulling it from streaming services and then putting it back up with a ridiculous health warning, Spencer Klavan insists on rewatching it.

    Resolved: HBO and all streaming services should absolutely include a recorded notification before the playing of the movie, however it is this recording of the Spencer Klavan podcast that should be the mandatory intro. Change my mind…
