Trivia

The estimated production costs were $3.9 million. At the time, only Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ (1925) and Hell's Angels (1930) had cost more.


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

At the beginning of the film there is a huge oak tree outside Tara's front door. After the war, and the Yankees have burned everything, the tree is gone. When the war is over, the tree returns in all its glory.


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 rough cut shown to MGM executives in July 1939 ran four and a half hours. By September 1939 it had been trimmed to three hours and forty minutes for a preview showing in Riverside, California. Further additions (including a fifth shooting of the opening scene) and deletions brought it to its final running time in December of three hours and forty-two minutes.
