“Gone with the Wind” (1939), starring Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh, is an epic tale of the old south from the start of the Civil War through reconstruction. The film follows the life of beautiful Scarlett O’Hara. From her young innocent days on a feudalistic plantation to the war-torn streets of Atlanta; from her first love, who she has always desired to three husbands; from the utmost luxury to absolute starvation and poverty; from her innocence to her understanding and comprehension of life.
