Published in the spring of 1936, Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind was an immediate and over-whelming success; millions of copies were sold in its first year alone. By the time the film opened on December 15, 1939, the anticipation and excitement were so great that the city of Atlanta declared the day an official holiday. Since then, more than 300 million people have seen the film and every year hundreds of thousands of copies of the novel are sold in dozens of languages. This lavishly illustrated book is the ultimate behind-the-scenes history of the novel, the film, and the phenomenon of Gone With the Wind. It includes wonderful anecdotes, original quotes from the stars and the directors, souvenir programs from the original premiere, many rare never-before-published photographs, and more. From the smell of the smoke and the heat of the flames during the filming of the "burning of Atlanta" sequence to the soft touch of the red dust at the location Tara; from the fatigue on the faces of cast and crew after grueling months of shooting to the thrill of premiere night, you will experience the unfolding drama as if you were there.

Very similar to "The Art of Gone With the Wind" with pictures and behind
the scenes anecdotes.

A lovely tribute to a wonderful film. Unfortunately, some wretched individual has torn 10% of the pictures out of the Milliken Mills copy. Shame on them!
