The movie was better than I expected. Though it was different than the book. I recommend to read the book first, it will make the movie more enjoyable. :)

"Gone With the Wind" defines classic. You can watch it many times and still enjoy it. The actors are Clark Gable and Vivian Leigh are great as the leading man and lady. The story is rich with color of the South and its people. Timeless best describes my feeling after watching "Gone With the Wind" again. This is a movie for the entire family. It has something for everyone and you are missing one of the best pictures ever if you haven't seen it yet.

If there is a movie better than the book, it is Gone with the Wind.
I read the book and seen the movie more than once.
Every generation must see.
The story of a Nation.

The acting is hideous in this movie, but I watch it to see the colors. The costumes are amazing! Hattie McDaniel's "Mammy" is my favorite character of all time. Clark Gable is wonderful as "Rhett Butler; doesn't put up with "Scarlett's" innocent act. ", but BEWARE: if you get this CD from any library or the PR one, it is defective.

I finished the movie, and it was different than the book.. But it was still good and even though it's long I encourage you to watch it. It is hard to take a book and make it into a movie, so congrats to the director and all other people who helped make it back in 1939. Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn. -Rhett Butler

Watch "12 Years a Slave" and then see if you can watch this romantic, soft-focus fantasy about the South again.

If you love horses, be warned, this movie has the most reckless and dangerous horsemanship I've ever seen, and one horse we see is starving - not nice!!! Also, the movie is very long, and very old so the acting is... not subtle. I got to like Scarlett after a while. Mammy steals the show (and apparently won an Oscar for it). The movie doesn't pack the emotional wallop of the book.

One of the greatest movies of all time hands down Vivien Leigh was brutally good as Scarlett

Ten Academy Awards. This film's magic is deserving on many levels, (producer Selznick's tenacity on making it for one), but I'm impressed with one person, mainly. Director Victor Fleming (Oscar). The man's vision is not only primarily responsible for this enormous accomplishment, but also The Wizard of Oz -- directing BOTH IN 1939. Absolutely beyond comprehension. Loved the cinematography; silhouettes against blazing backdrops (Oscar); Tara's theme; the melodrama; the cast... Vivien Leigh as Scarlett (Oscar) was the definitive manipulative drama-queen, with those crocodile tears. Gable as the smarmy Rhett Butler and that (censored)-eating grin. Legendary actors whose personal lives were so sadly tragic. Olivia de Havilland was so damned sweet and nice (still alive! 96 years old as of this review). But I think my favorite was the plump and hilarious Hattie McDaniel (Oscar) as the flustered 'Mammy'. Awesome classic. FIVE STARS.

Scarlett: "Fiddle-dee-dee! War, war, war. This war talk's spoiling all the fun at every party this spring. I get so bored I could scream."

Scarlett (wide-eyed, and smiling): "Atlanta..." Mammy: "Savannah would be better for ya -- you'd just get in trouble in Atlanta." Scarlett: "What trouble are you talking about?" Mammy: "You know what trouble I was talkin' 'bout. I was talkin' 'bout Mr. Ashley Wilkes. He'll be comin' to Atlanta when he gets his leave, and you settin' there waitin' for 'im, *JUST LIKE A SPIDER*. He belongs to Miss Melanie--" Scarlett: "YOU GO PACK MY THINGS, LIKE MOTHER SAID!"

Scarlett: "I guess I'd be very unpatriotic to hate one of the great heroes of the war. I do declare, I was surprised to see you turn out to be such a noble character." Rhett: "I can't bear to take advantage of your little girl ideas, Miss O'Hara. I'm neither noble, nor heroic." Scarlett: "But you are a blockade runner!" Rhett: "For profit, and profit only." Scarlett: "Are you tryin' to tell me you don't believe in the cause?" Rhett: "I believe in Rhett Butler. He's the only cause I know. The rest doesn't mean much to me."

Rhett (to Scarlett): "No, I don't think I will kiss you. Although you need kissing badly. That's what's wrong with you -- you should be kissed, and often. And by someone who knows how."

Scarlett: "You should die of shame, to leave me here alone and helpless!" Rhett: "You --helpless? Heh, heh, heh. Heaven help the Yankees if they capture you!"

Rhett: "You may keep your sanctity, Scarlett. It'll work no hardship on me." Scarlett: "Do you mean to say you don't care?" Rhett: "The world is full of many things, and many people. And I shan't be lonely. I'll find comfort elsewhere." Scarlett: "Well, that's fine. But I warn you, just in case you change your mind... I intend to lock my door." Rhett: "Why bother. If I wanted to come in, no lock could keep me out." (kicks her bedroom door open, breaking it; slugs down a shot of brandy and throws it at Scarlett's portrait on the wall)
