About LIFE Gone With The Wind
Eighty years after America fell in love with the cinematic classic Gone with the Wind, this new, special edition revisits the making of the award-winning movie and gives readers a rare look into the film's captivating, behind-the-scenes drama. This richly illustrated book is a must-have collector's item for old fans and new. Originally chronicled in the pages of LIFE, you'll find the travails of getting the movie made in the 1930s (1,400 actresses interviewed before Vivien Leigh was chosen; Selznick waited two years for Clark Gable to sign on to the project), the frenzy of its premiere, and much more. All of this coverage is revisited in this lavish coffee-table edition, which also includes behind-the-scenes photography from the set, stunning pictures of the famed burning of Atlanta scene, as well as all of the fascinating, intimate photography from the making of the movie. Furthermore, LIFE partnered with renowned southern authors to provide insight into the influence of the book and film on American culture and present a side-by-side chronicle of what Gone with the Wind claims, and what really happened during the Civil War. Informative, intriguing, and beautifully illustrated, this book is one for the ages.
