Hands down the best movie ever made. I'm probably a little biased because I watched it all the time starting at about 5 years old. However, as I grow older and start understanding human nature and relationships between men and women, my understanding of the movie broadens. Every character is the perfect choice, costumes are stunning, dialogue is enrapturing. The music never fails to give me goosebumps. Those movies that leave you wanting more are always the perfect ones and "Gone with the Wind" does exactly that.

I know exactly where BookEMonster is coming from. H/she is the kind of person that if you saved the life of Mother Theresa or prevent the Romans from crucifying Jesus Christ hey'd call you a racist. There has been so much said over the years about this movie that it is virtually impossible to add something without being boring. Nevertheless, I'll try. Kudos to Hollywood of the period from the second part of the 20th century on to the present for not trying to remake this movie. Anytime anybody would try to remake it, they are destined to fail. This is simply the best movie ever made. Nothing about it, including but not limited to acting, directing, screenplay, photography, music, can be improved. Margaret Mitchel's book could, of course, be easily transformed into a movie to fit BookEMonster's taste, namely make it into an unwatchable piece of junk honoring current political correctness hysteria, but (sorry George Clooney, Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts and all the others who think so much about themselves) it would be impossible to find actors better suitable for the role of Scarlet, Rhett, Mammie, Melanie, and all the other protagonists than those picked by David O. Selznick.

The movie Gone With The Wind is a wonderfully made movie that I really enjoyed watching. I loved the actors for each character - Vivien Leigh, who played Scarlett O’Hara, was perfect for the role and encompassed Scarlett’s personality perfectly. I loved the costume design of this movie as well, which was based on 1860s fashions and gave a feeling of profound nostalgia and awe at the beauty and attention to detail. The movie does however omit certain parts from the original book, and at times it feels as though parts are rushed just to fit the whole plot of the story in. -@ClockworkReader of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

No one who has ever seen Carol Burnett with that curtain rod over her shoulders can ever view this movie quite the same way. "It's just a little something I saw in the window."

Directed by Victor Fleming in 1939 adapted from Margaret Mitchell's 1936 novel of the same name, this American historical epic depicts the Scarlett O'Hara's romance set in the American South against the backdrop of the American Civil War and the Reconstruction era.
Although it seems overlong, it remains as one of the greatest films of all time.
As a history buff, I enjoyed it to the hilt.

I appreciate it cinematically, but it is a racist load of hogwash, like the book it was based on.

I was fortunate to see this epic on the big screen a few years ago on the west side of Indianapolis. When possible, it's nice to appreciate certain films in a darkened theater in the way they were intended.
This is one for the ages and part of our cultural history.

The book is a slog enlivened and sustained not by Scarlett O'Hara but by Rhett Butler whose presence is clarity and relief....... from Scarlett O'Hara! Thankfully the movie attains Scarlett's embodied survival as it's theme. (Huh?) She survives. That's what it's about. I think.

Must see! Every generation should read the book at least once and see the movie if they are so inclined. I've read the book 3 times myself and have a friend that's read it 35 times and counting!

Prissy: Mammy, here's Miss Scarlett's vittles.
Scarlett: You can take it all back to the kitchen; I won't eat a bite.
Mammy: Yes'm you is, you's gonna eat every mouthful of this.
Scarlett: No... I'm... NOT.
