“From the moment I read Gone With the Wind years ago, Scarlett fascinated me, as many others. She needed a good, healthy, old fashioned spanking on a number of occasions -  and I would have been delighted to give it to her. Conceited, spoiled, arrogant - All these things are of course true of the character
But she had courage and determination, which is why women must secretly admire her - even though we can’t feel too happy about her shortcomings”

December 15, 1939 - Gone With the Wind Premiers in Atlanta

Photograph of First Archivist of the United States R. D. W. Connor Receiving Film “Gone With The Wind” from Senator George of Georgia and Loew’s Eastern Division Manager Carter Barron, 1941


Meanwhile, Hattie McDaniel (who later won an Oscar) and the other black actors in the film were barred from attending, thanks to Georgia’s Jim Crow laws which were still firmly intact at the time. Clark Gable pitched a fit and threatened not to attend when he heard that McDaniel wouldn’t be allowed in, which makes me love him all the more. He went, but only after she talked him into it.

Like I needed more reasons to hate that movie…
