LIFE: Gone With the Wind: The Great American Movie 75 Years Later

LIFE: Gone With the Wind: The Great American Movie 75 Years Later
On this, the seventy-fifth year since Gone With the Wind, the editors of LIFE magazine present the book.  What else has held our attention for such a great period of time?  Gone With the Wind opens up to a photo of Scarlett and Rhett and a quote from her on the opposite page.  Quotes from our couple and other characters are peppered throughout the book.  Following is an introduction as penned by Molly Haskell.


If I said I was madly in love with you, you'd know I was lying.
Scarlett O'Hara

As one can imagine, the photography is breathtaking.  Gone With the Wind, the movie was more than a movie.  It was also an icon for that time period, highlighting issues such as race and history.

The book captures the enigma that was the Margaret Mitchell novel, then, the movie.
