In my defense, if defense is necessary:
Dear Charles W.,
Vulgarity was appropriate because the film is completely vulgar. Have you seen it?
Furthermore, the word “cunt” is terribly Elizabethan. Shakespeare adored it.
And lastly, the gowns in Elizabeth: The Golden Age are the only reason the film will be remembered, if it is remembered at all. I predict it will win an Oscar in costume design.
I remain, sir,
yr mst obd &c,
