One of the most famous scenes from Gone With The Wind. This story and I have been intricately linked from the moment it was introduced, weaving perceptions about me and my family throughout time.

  1. I have such a complicated relationship with this film but I love me some Rhett. Check out my review


  2. In celebration of the anniversary of this movies release, I thought I’d include some of the interesting facts behind the movie proclaimed that should it’s gross income of profits be adjusted to modern currency would be the highest grossing movie of all time.


    • Find plenty of facts at the GWTW fansite
      Here are a few:
      -There are 8 Tarleton children in the book. They are: Stuart, Brent, Tom, Boyd, Hetty, Camilla, Randa, and Betsy. They all have different shades of red hair.

      -For the premier in Atlanta on December 15, 1939, the governor of Georgia declared a state holiday. Ticket prices for the premier were going 40 times the usual rate.

      -Selznick’s first choice for Rhett was actor Gary Cooper. But he passionately rejected the role. He said “Gone With The Wind is going to be the biggest flop in Hollywood history. I’m glad it’s going to be Clark Gable falling flat on his feet, not me.” Wow. He was probably kicking himself after the movie came out. And for the rest of his life.
