Yes, it is a good drama, but it's one that doesn't need to be three hours long. The film just drags in too many spots and I lost most all sympathy for Scarlett. When Rhett says that famous line, at the end of the film, I felt like I couldn't agree more with him.

I must have fallen on my head too many times growing up. Frankly, I just think this film is OK. I don't know why I can't fawn over it. All filmsters must watch it at least once.

It's been awhile since I've seen this classic all the way through, but this past Thanksgiving I caught a majority of it on TV and it is still one of the greatest films in history. To think it was created in 1939 is astounding as it still holds up well today (but then again, so do a lot of films from 1939, the greatest year in film history). Plenty of iconic lines, characters, actors, and shots - the scene of the silhouetted Scarlet at the end of Part One stands out. Truly one of the best.

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...
