Gone with the Wind (1939)
|Director: ||Victor Fleming|
|Cast: ||Vivien Leigh, Clark Gable and Olivia de Havilland|
Considered one of the greatest movies ever made, the epic is really nothing more than a Civil War soap opera, but that's why we love it so much. Producer David O. Selznick spent two-and-one-half years looking for the perfect Scarlett, whom he found in Leigh. Winner of eight Oscars including Best Picture, Best Actress and Director.
