Gone With The Wind (1939) dir. by Victor Fleming; Produced by David O. Selznick
Wow! Epic in every sense of the word, GWTW is an amazing film! I'd never seen it before. I am still loving going back and "discovering" some of these classic films. GWTW was one of those that has become such an icon, that for a while I felt like there was no need to actually see the film (I thought the same thing about Psycho (1960). Boy was I wrong (about both films)!
Vivien Leigh was made to play this role. Funny that the casting of the role of Scarlett was such an arduous process and faced so much scrutiny. I can't imagine anyone else in the role.
From IMDB trivia:
Vivien Leigh worked for 125 days and received about $25,000. Clark Gable worked for 71 days and received over $120,000.
Though it will be very unscientific, I'd like to host a little poll here. In the comments for this post, please indicate whether or not you've ever seen this film from beginning to end. Just curious...
