Gone Girl / Top 5 Movie Missives

Before email, texts, Twitter and Snapchat, movie characters had to rely on ‘The Letter’ to communicate their most heartfelt feelings to one another — or to blackmail each other. Inspired by their discussion of director David Fincher's GONE GIRL, Adam and Josh share their Top 5 Movie Missives... the love letters, ransom notes and dear johns that have played pivotal roles in film.
