Storyline

Scarlett is a woman who can deal with a nation at war, Atlanta burning, the Union Army carrying off everything from her beloved Tara, the carpetbaggers who arrive after the war. Scarlett is beautiful. She has vitality. But Ashley, the man she has wanted for so long, is going to marry his placid cousin, Melanie. Mammy warns Scarlett to behave herself at the party at Twelve Oaks. There is a new man there that day, the day the Civil War begins. Rhett Butler. Scarlett does not know he is in the room when she pleads with Ashley to choose her instead of Melanie.

A rich romantic film…

Gerard O’Hara (Thomas Mitchell), an Irish immigrant, settles in North Georgia and becomes a prosperous plantation owner… By great luck he marries young Ellen Robillard (Barbara O’Neill) of Savannah, the daughter of one of the noblest Georgian families and becomes accepted by his aristocratic neighbors… They are blessed with three daughters, Scarlett (Vivien Leigh), Suellen (Evelyn Keyes), and Carreen (Ann Rutherford).

Scarlett, the eldest, worships her mother… Yet, under her beauty and Southern coquetry, she is charming, but proud, willful and vain… She believes she is in love with Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard), a good-hearted young army captain… But Ashley loves his cousin, Melanie Hamilton (Olivia de Havilland), a delicate, selfless woman… He is frightened by Scarlett’s energy and animation… And although he admits his feelings for her, he is afraid to marry her and decides to take Melanie for his bride…

When Scarlett loses Ashley she is more certain than ever that she must have him… On their wedding day, she meets Rhett Butler (Clark Gable), a wealthy adventurer from an old Charleston family… Rhett, a gambler—who believes that self-interest is the motive of all human conduct—is attracted by Scarlett’s beauty and realizes that they are equally merciless and conscienceless…

Vivien Leigh is magnificent as the spoiled, selfish southern belle… She carries the picture, and controls it… She reproduces the spirited character of Scarlett in all its fluent complexity…

Clark Gable—with a smile and great light in his eyes—is fascinating as the elegant, heroic gentleman … He is perfect as the ladies man… His dramatic high point is his scene crying in Melanie’s presence… His love scenes with Scarlett give the picture a vibrancy that is one of its great attractions… The film begins with their first stormy meeting in the library at Twelve Oaks and intensifies at the Atlanta bazaar, when he shocks the confederacy by bidding $l00 “in gold,” to dance with the newly widowed Mrs. Hamilton who cares for nothing but herself…

Hattie McDaniel gives a rich characterization as Mammy, Scarlett’s shrewd black servant who was never fooled by Scarlett’s airs and tears…

With a memorable music score by Max Steiner, the film was an instant classic, winner of eight Academy Awards…
