Did You Know?


Besides the film, the novel "Gone with the Wind" has received other adaptations. Among them are the Japanese-British theatrical musical "Scarlett" (1970), the Japanese theatrical musical with an all-female cast "Kaze to Tomo ni Sarinu" (1977), the French theatrical musical "Autant en Emporte le Vent" (2003), the Hungarian ballet of the same name (2007), the British theatrical musical "Gone with the Wind" (2008), and the Canadian theatrical version of the same name (2013).


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! ...


While Scarlett and Cathleen Calvert are ascending the stairs at Twelve Oaks, they discuss Rhett Butler. Right after Cathleen states that Butler is not "received," we catch a brief glimpse of Rhett in the background of the long shot. It is obvious that Clark Gable is not in this long shot. The impostor has a thick mustache, thick hair and is much paler than Gable.

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

For its fiftieth anniversary in 1989 a special restored version was prepared using some of the original negatives, some sections of which had been heavily damaged by time. This version restores the original 1.37:1 ratio, but has been usually projected in a 1.66:1 ratio because modern theaters lack the equipment to properly display the original screen size.
