Gone with the Wind (1939), Victor Fleming, George Cukor and Sam Wood

Published on

Gone with the Wind is a 1939 drama movie starring Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable. It was directed by Victor Fleming but, as everybody knows, the true star was its producer, David O. Selznick.

It was based on the novel written by Margaret Mitchell.

Plot

When wealthy Southern belle Scarlett O’Hara (Vivien Leigh) learns that Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard), whom she’s secretly in love with, is engaged to Melanie Hamilton (Olivia de Havilland), she decides to tell him at a party about her feelings for him. However, Ashley is not swayed, and responds that he’s much more suited to Melanie. Rhett Butler (Clark Gable), who has overheard their conversation, promises to Scarlett that he’ll keep her secret. The party is interrupted when it’s announced that the Civil War has begun. As the men leave to enlist, Melanie’s younger brother Charles asks for Scarlett’s hand in marriage. She agrees, even though she doesn’t love him. (filmaffinity)

Movie Reviews

“An interesting story beautifully told (…) Selznick’s film is a handsome, scrupulous and unstinting version of the 1,037-page novel” Frank S. Nugent: The New York Times 

“On the big screen, the huge exteriors and skylines ablaze have a dreamlike, expressionist quality. It is strange, mad and operatic (…) Rating: ????? (out of 5)” Peter Bradshaw: The Guardian
