Gone with the Wind Premiers in Atlanta, Georgia (1939)

American writer Margaret Mitchell only published one novel during her lifetime—Gone with the Wind—and it became one of the most popular novels in the history of American publishing. In 1939, an extraordinarily successful film version of the book was released, transferring the romantic, panoramic portrait of the Civil War and Reconstruction periods in Georgia to the big screen. The movie won 10 Academy Awards. What is the last line spoken in the film? More...

apparently (and I have never seen it) - a medical miracle. Going by the historical dates of the events mentioned in the story she is pregnant for 18 months or something! A bit of literary licence, I guess!

This is my favourite book. I do own an original copy, traded my Fiat for it, I got the better of the deal.Anxious

The story doesn't follow the book. She actually has two other children by the time she had Bonnie with Rhett.

peace out, >^,,^<

I think I was in fifth grade when I mistakenly brought the book to school. It was seemingly a huge hard cover copy, and I left it on my desk when I went to recess. The book's jacket cover brazenly displayed Scarlett with Rhett in a kind of a swoon, with a lot of her bosoms exposed...When I came back to class, Sister so and so, whose name I no longer remember, had removed the book from my desk and took me out into the hall and scolded me( a mild word), and said it was on the condemned list etc. In my innocence, I actually had not thought anything at all about the picture. My mother had romance books all over the house with pictures such as these on the book covers...But then she joined the "book club" and I started reading some of the books she ordered. Gone With the Wind was one of them. I thought it was a great story, like The Grapes of Wrath and War and Peace.:)
