#133. Gone With The Wind (1939)
Why It's In The Book: "Conceived from the outset as the ultimate Hollywood movie, Gone With The Wind became the benchmark for popular epic cinema for decades to come... the sweep of the movie is nearly irresistible, and Selznick's set pieces are among the most emblematic in cinema history... Dressed up with gorgeous 1939 Technicolor, pastel-pretty for the dresses and blazing red for the passions, and a thunderous Max Steiner score, this still has a fair claim to be considered the last word in Hollywood film-making." -1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die
Adolytsi - 10/10
"Gone With the Wind is the rightfully deserved paragon of excellent filmmaking."
Alyson - 10/10
"Any classic film buff will be blown away, artistic and visual-minded people will soak in the beauty of this film and anyone who enjoys a good story will be hooked within minutes."
KimWilson - 10/10
"Why, Ms. Scarlett (Vivien Leigh), I do declare that you are one of the greatest female characters, both in film and prose, in American history. You might be calculating but oddly still stupid at times, but I still like you and your 18 inch waist (pre Bonnie, rest her dear soul). Perhaps I often found myself hoping that Ms. Melly (Olivia de Havilland) would slap you or that a Yankee soldier would defile you—both to teach you a lesson—but I still hoped beyond hope that you would triumph in the end."
Klaus Ming - 10/10
"Gone With the Wind is a monumental undertaking filmed in glorious Technicolor, boasting an impressive cast of stars, thousands of extras, and some of the finest costuming, sets, and music that Hollywood has ever assembled."
Univarn - 10/10
"You see, for all its, negative traits Gone With the Wind is about facing change. Throughout the film Scarlett must match her will to live with the ever changing world around her."
alfindeol - 9/10
"Drink every time Scarlett is a bitch."
ChrisLejarzar - 9/10
"Gone With the Wind a film that evolves with the times. It makes us ask questions about history and about ourselves. At the very least, it has given us Scarlett O'Hara..."
Fey - 9/10
"They managed to create one of the best movie heroes of all time in Rhett Butler. He is wonderful because he is flawed and his flaws are happily flaunted for the audience."
Simon Columb - 9/10
"the biggest, broadest epic romance of all time."
Squish - 9/10
"Hattie McDaniel was the first African American to be nominated for an Oscar. Although Hattie went onstage and made an eloquent speech of thanks... she spent that magical evening at the Ambassador Hotel in the segregated 'Blacks Only' ballroom."
Movie Guy Steve - 8/10
"It’s not my particular cup of tea, honestly, but it is great and grand in a way that few films are."
Nicolas Krizan - 8/10
"Yet another enduring mega-classic from 1939"
This Guy Over Here - 8/10
"This film has become more than a film. It transcends cinema. Over the seventy years since its release, it has become a part of Americana..."
TSorensen - 8/10
"Scarlett is the classical spoiled, egocentric and manipulative Southern Belle and in a pulp version she would have grown up to become a loving and caring mother/wife/heroine. Instead she develops strength to become a powerful spoiled, egocentric and manipulative Southern Belle."
johnlgilpatrick - 7/10
"The second half, while good enough at the start, fails to even remotely capture the magic of the first half with its romantic entanglements and overblown melodrama. It just keeps going for what seems like hours until finally reaching its conclusion with a whimper instead of a bang."
Ripley - 7/10
"How well Gone With The Wind has managed the test of time is entirely up to you, people, but to me, it just represents the days of epic's past and nothing more."
Jeff Coté - 6/10
"The first half of the film is incredible. If it ended there, I would love it."
Overall Rating: 8.7/10
