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.
