"As God is my witness, I'll never be hungry again." - Scarlett O'Hara, Gone With the Wind (1939)

MGM, 238 minutes

Directed By: Victor Fleming


Clark Gable - Rhett Butler

Vivien Leigh - Scarlett O'hara

Leslie Howard - Ashley Wilkes

Olivia de Havilland - Melanie Hamleton

Hattie McDaniel - Mammy

Domestic Box Office Gross: $198,680,470

Synopsis: Gone With the Wind is a classic love story that follows Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler through the Civil War.

Fact: If adjusted for inflation Gone With the Wind would be the highest grossing film of all time beating Star Wars, Titanic and Avatar

Trivia: Victor Fleming was one of three directors to work on the film. Sam Wood and George Cukor are both uncredited.

Movie Mistake: The hospital scene, where Frank Kennedy and Scarlett meet, a water pitcher appears out of nowhere.

My Take: Gone With the Wind is a classic that everyone should see at least once. I could have gone with the standard "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn." but that's so cliche, popular and considered the most popular movie quote of all time. It was Scarlett's "I'll never be hungry again." quote that always stayed with me and I thought to be more memorable.

Somehow I never got around to watching this film. I think it is the length. It always seems hard to find a time to watch a lengthy film all the way through.
