Frankly, I do give a damn

Rhett Butler: "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn". I love that line.

The story is about a spoiled Southern girl's hopeless love for a married man. Producer David O. Selznick managed to expand this concept, and Margaret Mitchell's best-selling novel, into nearly four hours' worth of screen time, on a then-astronomical 3.7-million-dollar budget, creating what would become one of the most beloved movies of all time. Gone With the Wind opens in April of 1861, at the palatial Southern estate of Tara, where Scarlett O'Hara (Vivien Leigh) hears that her casual beau Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard) plans to marry "mealy mouthed" Melanie Hamilton (Olivia de Havilland). Despite warnings from her father (Thomas Mitchell) and her faithful servant Mammy (Hattie McDaniel), Scarl...

A Timeless Classic

Gone With the Wind is surely one of the greatest American films of all time. It's grandeur and epic nature is especially impressive for a film released in the late 1930s. It is quite clear that no expensive was sparred during production, as the film was made for a then astronomical figure of $3.85 million.

The story is about Scarlett O'Hara (Vivien Leigh), a Southern Belle looking to marry Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard), despite his impending marriage to Melanie Hamilton (Olivia de Havilland) just before he goes of to fight in the Civil War. Meanwhile, the scoundrel Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) profiteers as a blockade runner during the conflict, while pursuing an uninterested Scarlett. Of course, life during the war and reconstruction period is not easy as the Southern people are f...

It's been six years and the movie still isn't over

In 2002 I was a sixteen year old boy. I decided to rent a movie called Gone With the Wind. I put it in the VCR (back when VCRs were still used), fell asleep, and when I woke up I was twenty-two years old and looked like Tom Bombadil. Then I looked at the VCR and realized that the movie wasn't even halfway through. I didn't start throwing things then, surprisingly. Then I found out that this movie with inflation is the most successfull movie of all time. THAT'S when I threw my boot at the TV. This movie is just incredibley long, even longer than Titanic, and some of the acting is corny in some areas. There are some positive things, however. The actng overall is great, and this movie greatly contributed to film history. But it's simply too long and incredibley boring.
