Gone with the Wind (1939)
HA Classic in the History of Cinema
This movie tells the tale of a woman's life during one of the most tumultuous periods in American history. The film touches upon a number of themes: from her young, innocent days on a feudalistic plantation to the war-torn streets of Atlanta; to her first love to her third husband; from the lap of luxury to starvation and poverty; from innocence to an understanding of life.
This film shows the best of the American cinema. Whether we like the film or not, one has to recognize the greatest achievement, perhaps, of the creative talent of the people working in the movie industry. Gone with the Wind represents a monumental leap in cinematic creation educating the audience on American history and identity.
