March 9, 1941: It’s a Sunday, which means Jimmie Fidler has the day off. Instead, Philip K. Scheuer writes about “Gone With the Wind” (I know, I know, you’re thinking it’s a 1939 film). He says "which was withheld from the Film Daily's poll pending general release. That has only now taken place.”

Scheuer likes GWTW (surprise!) but says: “Is it a sign of something that our longest movie is about a girl being disillusioned in love? For everything that Scarlett does she does because she is frustrated in her passion for Ashley Wilkes. Sometimes I think he might better have given in.”

Also: Tom Treanor has an update on “Out of the Night.”
