Goofs

When Ashley comes to Atlanta for Christmas during the war, he and Melanie go upstairs to bed and call over the banister of the staircase landing to Scarlett. They proceed on to their room, and we see the light from their room reflected on the wall at the staircase landing. The light disappears as their bedroom door closes, leaving Scarlett watching in misery. However, when we see Prissy and Scarlett packing to leave Atlanta because Sherman is coming (while Melanie is in labor) it appears that there is no bedroom in a position that could leave a light on the landing wall.


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'".
