What do we care if we *were* expelled from college, Scarlett? The war is gonna start any day now, so we'd have left college anyhow.

Rather than simply saying "Selznick International in association with Metro-Goldwyn Mayer presents Margaret Mitchell's 'Gone With the Wind'", the opening credits say "Selznick International in association with Metro-Goldwyn Mayer has the honor to present its Technicolor production of Margaret Mitchell's story of the Old South 'Gone With the Wind'".
Foreign versions of the film included a scrolling text prologue to explain the circumstances leading to the American civil war.
