GONE WITH THE WIND

This masterpiece starring Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh, Leslie Howard and Olivia de Havilland premiered on December 15, 1939 in Atlanta. Its production was a great event that caused a frenzy of excitement. The press leaks alone were absolutely sensational: Atlanta burned to the ground before casting was complete; every big star in Hollywood went after the roles; a fistful of famous directors was hired and fired; the search for an unknown Scarlett went on for two years; and finally there was the apparition of the beautiful Vivien Leigh. Now David 0. Selznick's production of Margaret Mitchell's story of the Old South - Scarlett O'Hara's passion for Ashley Wilkes and her marriage to Rhett Butler - has been restored to its original 35mm Technicolor splendor. One of the greatest and most honored movies ever made, GONE WITH THE WIND still tugs at the heart and brings tears to the eyes.
