Gone With The Wind


Review: About a manipulative girl who is in love with a married man.
Director: Victor Fleming
Actors: Clark Gable, Thomas Mitchell and Vivien Leigh
Year: 1939
Genre: Drama, War, Romance and Classic
Conclusion: 5/5
Amazing film! I would highly recommend it even though it is about 4 hours long. It is a shame that you don’t get films like this anymore. Based on a book by Margaret Mitchell. It was in 2007 that the American Film Institute ranked this as the 6th Greatest Movie of all time. It is rumored that the producer got fined $5,000 for using the word “damn”. It is reported in one of the newspapers at the time that the producer was going to make it into two films. At the Oscars in 1940 it won Best Art Direction, Best Actress in a Leading Role-Vivien Leigh, Best Actress in a Supporting Role-Hattie McDaniel, Best Cinematography-Color, Best Director, Best Film Editing, Best Picture and Best Writing-Screenplay. Won a special award called Technical Achievement Award and also an Honorary Award for William Cameron Menzies. This is on Barry Norman’s list of 100 Greatest Films of all time that he produced at the start of 2012 in the Radio Times.
