This movie is AMAZING! and "frankly my dears I don't give a damn" if you don't think so. I have watched this movie too many times to count. I hope I get the opportunity to see it in the theater this time for it's 80th Anniversary. I also hope that Oliva De Haviland "Miss Mellie" will have a chance to see it again too.
Five stars are not enough stars for this movie. By all means go see this movie in a theatre and then read the book. That’s my order that I’m suggesting. For me, seeing a movie based on a novel prior to reading it gives me an image of what the characters look. And if you are in Alabama in August, to truly get an authentic and aesthetically fulfilling experience go see Gone With Wind again. The Alabama Theatre in Birmingham, Alabama is where Gone Witth The Wind first played in Alabama when it was released in 1939. Some people see GWTW as a romantic “chick flick.” It may be my psychology and clinical counselor degrees that forse me to see the people as broken people, adapting to a new way of living. If we look further than the end of our nose to see how the leading characters evolve and grow as a person.
I've been I. Love with Scarlett and Rhett since I could talk. I recommend this to everyone I know.
they dont make movies like this timeless movie... never gets old!!
This film has stood the test of time. A compelling story line, great acting, and memorable dialogue. It's a bit long for some- nearly 4 hours, but it has everything: comedy, adventure, action, and romance , but with just enough comedic relief to keep it from being corny. I have watched this film over 32 times, and 3 times in the theater. It is a movie you have to see before you die. Please see it in a theater too. It's an epic. Just amazing in cinematic photography, costumes, and effects that still resonate with movie goers to this day!
The acting, the period, the romance and the romanticized vision of the old south. in 1939, color was at it's infancy, so to speak. Most movies were black and white. The decision to do this film in color pushed this film right over the top and helped make it the great film that it is.
