About this movie

Producer David O. Selznick’s acclaimed screen adaptation of Margaret Mitchell’s best-selling novel tells of the romance between the tempestuous Scarlett O’Hara (Vivien Leigh) and the dashing Rhett Butler (Clark Gable), against the tragic backdrop of the Civil War. This legendary classic earned 10 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actress, (Leigh) Best Director (Victor Fleming), and Best Supporting Actress to Hattie McDaniel, the first Oscar ever awarded to an African American performer.  One of the highest-grossing films of all time (when adjusted for inflation), it is also very much a product of its time, and unfortunately reflects depictions of characters and themes which are offensive and problematic when viewed by contemporary audiences. The film is presented here as originally released in 1939, because to do otherwise would be the equivalent of stating the prejudices and attitudes never existed.

I love this movie, & the book as well. Both are very classic & entertaining. I admit I do not like slavery or the idea of it, but we can not change history. We can learn from it & grow into better people because of it. Mammy was my favorite character. I wish I could have met her in real life. She was funny & so full of life! I just love her.

I really do hate we have to disclaim this even thou it's an obvious film from it's time(Also there are a lot more offensive films than this). But I am at least hopping the leave this untouched, edited or altered. If to disclaim to the sensitive is the only way to release this film unaltered so be it. Never the less I give this film positive reviews.
