With red tape like this and 5 directors, it's a marvel the film came out as exceptional as it does. TWoO absolutely gets my vote.

Feels like something Miyazaki might say too. :) So many of his protagonists have Dorothy-like hearts.

Aw shucks, I always thought Fleming directed the film because Louis B. told him to.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

I don't know what you people are talking about. The movie is a metaphor about monetary policy and the Gold Standard.
