How many times have I seen it? Frankly, I don’t know. However, I’ve never seen it on the big screen, so I purchased a ticket for 2 p.m. Sunday. No doubt the show will be filled with a more mature crowd, rather than the younger generation. Frankly, I think that’s a shame.
If you’ve never seen the movie, you should watch it at least once in your life. Based on the book by Margaret Mitchell it is a classic filled with famous stars who are no longer with us. The only remaining cast member that I’m aware of is Olivia De Havilland, who is now 98 years old. In her youth, she was the beautiful and gracious Melanie in the story.
Gone with the wind (like the old south) are movies of this nature that were made without graphic sex and naked bodies. They were made with sexual tension, emotions, ideals and thoughts that tugged at your heart. Even though the cinematography and story may seem a bit out of place 75 years later, it’s a classic that shouldn’t die.
