Okay...true story. Gone With the Wind is one of my favorite movies. The amazing thing is that my kids love it too. My husband bought me the DVD almost 6 years ago, and I swear the kids watched it more than me. Anyway, about 6 months after he bought it for me, we moved to Chicago. Didn't have money to hook up the TV, so the kids could only watch DVD's. They watched Gone With the Wind over and over! Then, about 6 months after we moved, we're riding in the car and the radio guy announces that "The Yankees Are Coming!" Yep, the New York Yankees were coming to Chicago to play the Cubs in an exhibition game. My youngest son, who was 5 at the time, burst into tears! He thought the Yankees were coming to Chicago to burn the place down! It took quite a bit to make him believe they were just coming out to play baseball. This is one of those stories I just can't wait to tell his girlfriends when he brings them home!

Gone with the wind, a 1939 best picture is my most favorite movie of all times. it took me 5-6 hours watching it (including the break)...anyway i just borrowed it from uncle so i just watch it once... but it is a very long movie... i cannot forget the beauty but having a bad attitude of Scarlet O'hara (Vivien Leigh)... with regards to actors and actresses the only living actress i know until now is Olivia de Havilland who portrayed the role of Melanie in Gone with the Wind.. i she still alive until now? is there any existing or living actor or actresses of Gone with the Wind..?
