One of my all time favourites and an absolute masterclass in film. Any other fans?

A historical period drama, a civil war film, a romance film, full of fully realised, completely flawed characters, lead by one hell of a strong, modern, independent woman - all made in 1930s. It has everything, from witty one liners to fantastic costumes to a cast that will nevertheless grow old because of this.

Winner of 10 Oscars - including Best Film, Best Director, Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress (and the first African American) - adjusted for inflation, Gone With The Wind is the highest grossing film of all time, with box office scores in excess of $3.4 Billion.

Legend has it they auditioned 1000 actresses for the lead role, and honestly, it was worth the wait. Scarlett O’Hara is possibly my all time favourite fictional characters because the woman has balls of steel, determination that would have put her in the White House had she been real :lol: and no one but Vivienne Leigh could have done it.

I sent to a Hollywood costume exhibition and they had that dress. I know it wasn’t really made of curtains, but the material used and workmanship that went into that dress is phenomenal.
