The acting is hideous in this movie, but I watch it to see the colors. The costumes are amazing! Hattie McDaniel's "Mammy" is my favorite character of all time. Clark Gable is wonderful as "Rhett Butler; doesn't put up with "Scarlett's" innocent act. ", but BEWARE: if you get this CD from any library or the PR one, it is defective.

I finished the movie, and it was different than the book.. But it was still good and even though it's long I encourage you to watch it. It is hard to take a book and make it into a movie, so congrats to the director and all other people who helped make it back in 1939. Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn. -Rhett Butler

Watch "12 Years a Slave" and then see if you can watch this romantic, soft-focus fantasy about the South again.

If you love horses, be warned, this movie has the most reckless and dangerous horsemanship I've ever seen, and one horse we see is starving - not nice!!! Also, the movie is very long, and very old so the acting is... not subtle. I got to like Scarlett after a while. Mammy steals the show (and apparently won an Oscar for it). The movie doesn't pack the emotional wallop of the book.

One of the greatest movies of all time hands down Vivien Leigh was brutally good as Scarlett

Ten Academy Awards. This film's magic is deserving on many levels, (producer Selznick's tenacity on making it for one), but I'm impressed with one person, mainly. Director Victor Fleming (Oscar). The man's vision is not only primarily responsible for this enormous accomplishment, but also The Wizard of Oz -- directing BOTH IN 1939. Absolutely beyond comprehension. Loved the cinematography; silhouettes against blazing backdrops (Oscar); Tara's theme; the melodrama; the cast... Vivien Leigh as Scarlett (Oscar) was the definitive manipulative drama-queen, with those crocodile tears. Gable as the smarmy Rhett Butler and that (censored)-eating grin. Legendary actors whose personal lives were so sadly tragic. Olivia de Havilland was so damned sweet and nice (still alive! 96 years old as of this review). But I think my favorite was the plump and hilarious Hattie McDaniel (Oscar) as the flustered 'Mammy'. Awesome classic. FIVE STARS.

There is a lot of reasons that I should have had alot lower opinion of this movie. I don't generally like old movies. Most of the time I think the acting and the plotlines are obvious and cliche. This movie was just great fun. I loved the characters and the story. The dark tone and hardcore anti-heroes abound. Even the ending spits in the face of all that is good and romantic. I really loved this movie even though it was incredibly long. A must see.

A classic! This film transports you to a time of great highs and lowsand allows one to view the Old South from the Southern's viewpoint.

A fantastic film that is still relevant today. Although it is long, the movie moves at just the right pace. What I love about the film is the different levels of the plot and how Scarlett is presented as both a hateable and likeable character. You hate her for her selfishness and stubbornness, but you admire her at the same time for her courage. I would definitely see the film again.

Scarlett (wide-eyed, and smiling): "Atlanta..." Mammy: "Savannah would be better for ya -- you'd just get in trouble in Atlanta." Scarlett: "What trouble are you talking about?"

Scarlett: "I guess I'd be very unpatriotic to hate one of the great heroes of the war. I do declare, I was surprised to see you turn out to be such a noble character." Rhett: "I can't bear to take advantage of your little girl ideas, Miss O'Hara. I'm neither noble, nor heroic." Scarlett: "But you are a blockade runner!" Rhett: "For profit, and profit only." Scarlett: "Are you tryin' to tell me you don't believe in the cause?" Rhett: "I believe in Rhett Butler. He's the only cause I know. The rest doesn't mean much to me."

Rhett (to Scarlett): "No, I don't think I will kiss you. Although you need kissing badly. That's what's wrong with you -- you should be kissed, and often. And by someone who knows how."

Rhett: "You may keep your sanctity, Scarlett. It'll work no hardship on me." Scarlett: "Do you mean to say you don't care?" Rhett: "The world is full of many things, and many people. And I shan't be lonely. I'll find comfort elsewhere." Scarlett: "Well, that's fine. But I warn you, just in case you change your mind... I intend to lock my door." Rhett: "Why bother. If I wanted to come in, no lock could keep me out." (kicks her bedroom door open, breaking it; slugs down a shot of brandy and throws it at Scarlett's portrait on the wall)
