A society of those who appreciate the classic film Gone With the Wind.
YEAR: 1939 GENRE: Romantic Drama RATING: NR
One of the great cinematic achievements, technically as well as in enduring appeal, this is a movie that keeps finding an audience with every successive generation. The story and characters are familiar to even the most casual moviegoer: an indomitable Southern belle (Leigh) loves and loses and loves again a slyly dashing war profiteer as she struggles to protect her family and beloved plantation, Tara, from the ravages of the Civil War. Based on Margaret Mitchell's 1936 novel, which at the time of the film's release, had surpassed 1,500,000 copies sold. Selznick paid $50,000 for rights to the book, the largest such sum to that date.
