This is a perfect movie to give your children as a comparison to what constitutes a good movie.
I took my 13 yr old daughter to see GWTW. As expected when I suggested it she was less than thrilled, who wants to see a moldy old movie....
Was she surprised! She was totally engrossed, with her heels on the seat and arms clasped around her legs. Afterward we discussed what made it so good and compared it to Titanic (her previous concept of a really good movie)--- the characters, the portrayl of history, and the difference between Titanic and GWTW - the lack of foolish plots (T and the stolen necklace, aimlessly chasing around the boat) and true character development of more than 1 character, just to name a few.
She "admitted" the only real positive to Titanic was looking at Leo and the actual sinking story and visual effects.
GWTW had everything and she wants to buy the video!
Frankly my dear, I do give a Damn! "Gone with the Wind is over four hours of emotional spirits. the film tells of a southern belle (played by Vivian Leigh) who life has been changed forever by the Civil War and the aftermanth. Clark Gable gives a powerful performance as the man in her life. GWTW is powerful cinema that rises to new depths of greatness.
GWTW was released in 1939, the same year as "The Wizard of Oz," "Gunga Din" and dozen of titles that became a great year at the movies. Those who had seen it more than once, see it again, those who had never seen the movie, what are you waiting for?
