Why is Gone With The Wind on a list of romantic movies?

Nothing will get you and your squeeze all snuggly like watching Miss O'Hara use up men like tissues?
This movie also includes the untimely death of a child.
So where's the romantic part? Is it when Rhett lets Scarlett know he's not getting stuck in her honeytrap again? I feel like I'm missing something here...

according to, a synonym for "romantic" is "chimerical", and a synonym for "chimerical" is "unfounded", and a synonym for "unfounded" is "mendacious", and a synonym for "mendacious" is "perfidious", which yields this definition:

deliberately faithless; treacherous; deceitful: a perfidious lover.

so now perhaps you understand where they were going with this.

p.s. i now challenge you to use "perfidious" in conversation this weekend.
