Gone With the Wind – 80th Anniversary Viewing

January 6 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

THE 80TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE CONTROVERSIAL CLASSIC

Based on Margaret Mitchell’s bestseller, GONE WITH THE WIND was the most talked-about movie of its era. A sweeping epic on the grandest of scales, it quickly became both a blockbuster (it held the title of highest grossing film ever for 27 years) and an Oscar magnet, winning eight Academy Awards and two honorary awards, a record in its day. The combustible passion between Scarlett O’Hara (Vivien Leigh) and Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) was hotter than the flames of Atlanta and defined cinematic romance for generations to come. Its impact on American culture was enormous and enduring.

How should we view GONE WITH THE WIND on its 80th anniversary? Can we appreciate it as a legendary and beloved movie while acknowledging its sometimes problematic themes and attitudes? What does its enduring popularity say about us? How has its rosy view of plantation life, slavery, and the pre-Civil War South affected the public perception of that culture? These are topics worth thinking about.

Spectacular in scope and brimming with enormous emotions, GONE WITH THE WIND is very much a product of its time, and yet the same questions and concerns it raised decades ago are as relevant as ever today.
