Trivia

The supporting character Mammy plays little part in subsequent novels. She dies very early in the events of sequel novel "Scarlett" (1991)


Quotes

Brent Tarleton: 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.
Stuart Tarleton: War! Isn't it exciting, Scarlett? You know those fool Yankees actually *want* a war?
Brent Tarleton: We'll show 'em!
Scarlett: Fiddle-dee-dee! ...


Goofs

Mammy mistakenly says "John Wilkenson's" instead of "John Wilkes" in her famous line, "I ain't aimin' for you to go to Mr. John Wilkenson's and eat like a field hand and gobble like a hog!" The barbecue was held at the home of John Wilkes, not Jonas Wilkerson, the overseer.


Crazy Credits

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'".


Alternate Versions

The first broadcast showing, on Nov. 7, 1976, had an entirely unfamiliar moment in the scenic backgrounds of the scrolling prologue. In all known prints, the last scene was of slaves driving oxen toward the camera, silhouetted against a sunset sky. But NBC's print ended the prologue on a blue sky with moving clouds.
