Gone with the Wind Turns 75
How did I miss this? My favorite book and movie, "Gone with the Wind", turned 75 over the summer!I love, love, love this story!
I've read through Margaret Mitchell's novel twice and I can't count how many times I've watched this movie. It doesn't matter if it's on TCM, VHS or DVD I'm watching it!
Did you know in the book Scarlett had children with both of her husband Charles and Frank, before having a girl with Rhett Butler. The movie only tells of Bonnie. Yes it's true.
According to this USA Today article Mitchell originally named the lead character Scarlett O'Hara, Pansy.
In honor of it's 75th anniversary I couldn't resist taking this buzzfeed.com quiz: Which 'Gone with the Wind' character are you?
I'm Scarlett O'Hara: Great balls of fire! You are one tough, independent, fire cracker and certainly a force to be reckoned with. With your striking good looks and quick wit, you are often the center of attention and certainly know how to work a crowd. You are a natural leader and when faced with conflict it’s your resilient and determined nature that pulls everyone through. Your hard-headed tendencies can get the best of you. But you can't help it - you know what you want, you know what’s right, and you're gonna get it!
That makes me laugh. Some of it is true about me, some of it not so true.
I'm just glad I'm not Ashley Wilkes. Ugh! what a milk toast sappy character.
Take the quiz and see for yourself.
