Letter-writing might be a lost art. But once upon a time before the era of telegraphs, phones and e-mails, hand-written letters were how people stayed in touch. There was a lot of monogrammed stationary, scented inks and even real scents involved when it came to expressing love through the medium of letters. Over time, letters were replaced by phones, and recently e-mails and texts. But there are still a few who believe that letters are still the best form of expressing your thoughts. On World Post Day, we have compiled a list of movies, those that believed letters are the ultimate tool for romance.
