Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Set in 1913 Cuba, the Spanish Letters from the Park top-bills Victor La Place as a professional letter-writer. It is La Place's job to put into words the thoughts and emotions of those too inarticulate, or too shy, to do so themselves. He is hired by timid young hot-air balloon enthusiast Miguel Paneque, who wants to send a few billet doux to his beloved. In true Cyrano fashion, La Place himself falls in love with Paneque's dream girl. Almost as lightweight as one of Paneque's balloons, Letters from the Park is an engaging new slant on an old saw.
