Four Oscar Wishes
FOURTH WISH: I wish The Lone Ranger would win the golden statuette for BEST MAKE-UP AND HAIR STYLING. Yes, I know this hilarious Western flopped at the box office, but it’s the most fun I had at the movies in years! Although the horse Silver captivated me every time he came on camera, Johnny Depp – bizarrely decked out and made up as a new version of Tonto (whose facial expressions when watching his sidekick do stupid things) -- was nothing short of priceless here. Plus, just thinking about Armie Hammer’s amusing portrayal of the Lone Ranger as Tonto’s sidekick instead of vice-versa still starts me laughing.

There Is Nothing Like a Dame
Congratulations on being recognized by Queen Elizabeth with the Order of the British Empire. I think that means you are now a Dame! You certainly deserve this honor because of all your work raising so much money for research, scholarships and numerous worthy charities. But I'm sure your wonderful contributions to the field of entertainment helped you be such a successful fundraiser.
Like so many movie lovers, I've been an avid fan of yours ever since first seeing you in Gaslight; and I want to thank you for the great pleasure your performances on film and television have given me. Although I haven't been fortunate enough to see your live theater work, I love watching YouTube clips of your splendid musical numbers in Mame and Sweeney Todd. You, dear lady, have it all -- the ability to do drama, comedy and musicals equally well.
Angela Lansbury performances among my favorites include your terrifying mother in Manchurian Candidate, your amusing witch in Bedknobs and Broomsticks and your marvelous portrayal of Jessica Fletcher in those terrific "Murder, She Wrote" television episodes, which I watch over and over again.
As a film critic and host of a movie-related radio talk show, I appreciate the professionalism you bring to every project you become involved in. And whenever I see you on screen, I feel a strong sense of admiration that I've wanted to express to you for a very long time.

Although our little book is written in a He Remembers/She Remembers format, Misha has used his cinematic talents to make the story more visual and to update the time period. He's also focused on the humorous elements of "Harry and Elizabeth's" journey back to each other after being divorced and estranged for almost 20 years.
The Ebook edition of It Had To Be Us won a first place at the Hollywood Book Festival a few years ago because of its potential to be transferred to other media like radio and film. Here's hoping this is the beginning step toward becoming a motion picture!
Thanks to Misha Zubarev for his extraordinary dedication to this special project.
