The arrangement to release through MGM meant delaying the start of production until the end ofwhen Selznick's distribution deal with United Artists concluded. Selznick began a nationwide casting call that interviewed 1, unknowns. Katharine Hepburn lobbied hard for the role with the support of her friend, George Cukor, who had been hired to direct, but she was vetoed by Selznick who felt she was not right for the part.
However, Hopkins was in her mid-thirties at the time and was considered too old for the part. Leigh's American agent was the London representative of the Myron Selznick talent agency headed by David Selznick's brother, one of the owners of Selznick Internationaland she had requested in February that her name be submitted for consideration as Scarlett. By the summer Billy Joel - Greatest Hits Volume I & Volume II the Selznicks were negotiating with Alexander Kordato whom Leigh was under contract, for her services later that year.
In a letter to his wife two days later, Selznick admitted that Leigh was "the Scarlett dark horse", and after a series of screen tests, her casting was announced on January 13, Identically, Miss Leigh's parents are French and Irish. Of original screenplay writer Sidney Howardfilm historian Joanne Yeck writes, "reducing the intricacies of Gone with the Wind ' s epic dimensions was a herculean task Fleming was dissatisfied with the script, so Selznick brought in famed writer Ben Hecht to rewrite the entire screenplay within five days.
Hecht returned to Howard's original draft and by the end of the week had Freqolution - Various - Defqon.1 - Victory Forever in revising the entire first half of the script.
Selznick undertook rewriting the second half himself but fell behind schedule, so Howard returned to work on the script for one week, reworking several key scenes in part two. The fact that Howard's name alone appears on the credits may have been as much a gesture to his memory as to his writing, for in Sidney Howard died at age 48 in a farm-tractor accident, and before the movie's premiere.
Offhand I doubt that there are ten original words of [Oliver] Garrett's in the whole script. As to construction, this is about eighty per cent my own, and the rest divided between Jo Swerling and Sidney Howard, with Hecht having contributed materially to the construction of one sequence. Hecht was in the middle of working on the film At the Circus for the Marx Brothers. Recalling the episode in a letter to screenwriter friend Gene Fowlerhe said he hadn't read the novel but Selznick and director Fleming could not wait for him to read it.
They acted scenes based on Sidney Howard's original script which needed Scarlett Makes Her Demands Of Rhett - Max Steiner - Gone With The Wind be rewritten in a hurry. Hecht wrote, "After each scene had been performed and discussed, I sat down at the typewriter and wrote it out. Selznick and Fleming, eager to continue with their acting, kept hurrying me. We worked in this fashion for seven days, putting in eighteen to twenty hours a day. Selznick refused to let us eat lunch, arguing that food would slow us up.
He provided bananas and salted peanuts MacAdams writes, "It is impossible to determine exactly Eviscerate (Version) - Squarepusher - Conumber EP much Hecht scripted In the official credits filed with the Screen Writers GuildSidney Howard was of course awarded the sole screen credit, but four other writers were appended Jo Swerling for contributing to the treatment, Oliver H.

Emanuel LevyCukor's biographer, claimed that Gable had worked Hollywood's gay circuit as a hustler and that Cukor knew of his past, so Gable used his influence to have Trying To Catch The Wind - Spaghetti Jensen - Trying To Catch The Wind discharged.
Although some of Cukor's scenes were later reshot, Selznick estimated that "three solid reels" of his work remained in the picture. As of the end of principal photography, Cukor had undertaken eighteen days of filming, Fleming ninety-three, and Wood twenty-four. Cinematographer Lee Garmes began the production, but on March 11, —after a month of shooting footage that Selznick and his associates regarded as "too dark"—was replaced with Ernest Hallerworking with Technicolor cinematographer Ray Rennahan.
Garmes completed the first third of the film—mostly everything prior to Melanie having the baby—but did not receive a credit. With that amendment, the Production Code Administration had no Scarlett Makes Her Demands Of Rhett - Max Steiner - Gone With The Wind objection to Rhett's closing line. Warner Bros. Steiner spent twelve weeks working on the score, the longest period that he had ever spent writing one, and at two hours and thirty-six minutes long it was also the longest that he had ever written.
The score is characterized by two love themes, one for Ashley's and Melanie's sweet love and another that evokes Scarlett's passion for Ashley, though notably there is no Scarlett and Rhett love theme. The theme that is most associated with the film today is the melody that accompanies Tara, the O'Hara plantation; in the early s, "Tara's Theme" formed the musical basis Scarlett Makes Her Demands Of Rhett - Max Steiner - Gone With The Wind the song "My Own True Love" by Mack David.
In all, there are ninety-nine separate pieces of music featured in the score. Due to the pressure of completing on time, Steiner received some assistance in composing from Friedhofer, Deutsch and Heinz Roemheldand in addition, two short cues—by Franz Waxman and William Axt —were taken from scores in the MGM library.
The film was still a rough cut at this stage, missing completed titles and lacking special optical effects. It ran for four hours and twenty-five minutes; it was later cut to under four hours for its proper release. A double bill of Hawaiian Nights and Beau Geste was playing, but after the first feature it was announced that Its Over (Radio Edit) - Various - Taneční Liga 59 theater would be screening a preview; the audience were informed they could leave but would not be readmitted once the film had begun, nor would phone calls be allowed once the theater had been sealed.
When the title appeared on the screen the audience cheered, and after it had finished it received a standing ovation. Sometimes I think it's the greatest picture ever made. But if it's only a great picture, I'll still be satisfied.
Aboutpeople came out in Atlanta for the film's premiere at the Loew's Grand Theatre on December 15, It Scarlett Makes Her Demands Of Rhett - Max Steiner - Gone With The Wind the climax of three days of festivities hosted by Mayor William B. Hartsfieldwhich included a parade of limousines featuring stars from the film, receptions, thousands of Confederate flags, and a costume ball.
Eurith D. Riversthe governor of Georgia, declared December 15 a state holiday. An estimated three hundred thousand residents and visitors to Atlanta lined the streets for up to seven miles to watch a procession of limousines bring the stars from Scarlett Makes Her Demands Of Rhett - Max Steiner - Gone With The Wind airport. Upon learning that McDaniel had been barred from the premiere, Clark Gable threatened to boycott the event, but McDaniel persuaded him to attend. After reaching saturation as a roadshow, MGM revised its terms to a 50 Keef Hartley Band* - Seventy Second Brave cut and halved the prices, before it finally entered general release in at "popular" prices.
In doing so, a number of shots were optically re-framed and cut into the three-strip camera negatives, forever altering five shots in the film. A release commemorated the centennial anniversary of the start of the Civil War, and included a gala "premiere" at the Loew's Grand Theater.

Upon its release, consumer magazines and newspapers generally gave Gone with the Wind excellent reviews;  however, while its production values, technical achievements, and scale of ambition were universally recognized, some reviewers of the time found the film to be too long and dramatically unconvincing. Frank S. Nugent for The New York Times best summed up the general sentiment by acknowledging that while it was the most ambitious film production made up to that point, it probably was not the greatest film ever made, but he nevertheless found it to be an "interesting story beautifully told".
There are moments when the two categories meet on good terms, but the long stretches between are filled with mere spectacular efficiency. While the film was praised for its fidelity to the novel,  this aspect was also singled out as the main factor in contributing to the lengthy running time.
Flinn wrote for Variety that Selznick had "left too much in", and that as entertainment, the film would have benefited if repetitious scenes and dialog from the latter part of the Catch Me In Old Jaguar - Elán - Kamikadze Lover & Nightshift (CD, Album, Album) had been trimmed.
The Guardian believed that if "the story had been cut short and tidied up at the point marked by the interval, and if the personal drama had been made subservient to a cinematic treatment of the central theme—the collapse and devastation Scarlett Makes Her Demands Of Rhett - Max Steiner - Gone With The Wind the Old South—then Gone With the Wind might have been a really great film".
Despite many excellent scenes, he considered the drama to be unconvincing and that the "psychological development" had been neglected. Much of the praise was reserved for the casting, with Vivien Leigh in particular being singled out for her performance as Scarlett. Nugent described her as the "pivot of the picture" and believed her to be "so perfectly designed for the part by art and nature that any other actress in the role would be inconceivable".
At the 12th Academy AwardsGone with the Wind set a record for Academy Award wins and nominations, winning in eight of the competitive categories it was nominated in, from a total of thirteen nominations. The film's record of eight competitive wins stood until Gigi won nine, and its overall record of ten was broken by Ben-Hur which won eleven. Hattie McDaniel became the first African-American to win an Academy Award—beating out her co-star Olivia de Havilland, who was also nominated in the same category—but was racially segregated Various - Anglo-American Ballads her co-stars at the awards ceremony at the Coconut Grove ; she and her escort were made to sit at a separate table at the back of the room.
Thalberg Memorial Award for his career achievements. Black commentators criticised the film for its depiction of black people and as a glorification of slavery. Carlton Mossa black dramatist, complained in an open letter that whereas The Birth of a Nation was a "frontal attack on American history and the Negro people", Gone with the Wind was a "rear attack on the same".
He went on to dismiss it as a "nostalgic plea for sympathy for a still living cause of Southern reaction". Moss further criticized the stereotypical black characterizations, such as the "shiftless and dull-witted Pork", the "indolent and thoroughly irresponsible Prissy", Big Sam's "radiant acceptance of slavery", and Mammy with her "constant haranguing and doting on every wish of Scarlett". McDaniel responded that she would "rather make seven hundred dollars a week playing a maid than seven dollars being one"; she further questioned White's qualification to speak on behalf of blacks, since he was light-skinned and only one-eighth black.
Opinion in the black community was generally divided upon release, with the film being called by some a "weapon of terror against black America" and an insult to black audiences, and demonstrations were held in various cities. In its editorial congratulation to McDaniel on winning her Academy Award, Opportunity: A Journal of Negro Life used the film as reminder of the "limit" put on black aspiration by old prejudices.
Upon its release, Gone with the Wind broke attendance records everywhere. At the Capitol Theatre in New York alone, it averaged eleven thousand admissions per day in late December,  and within four years of its release had sold an estimated sixty million tickets across the United States—sales equivalent to just under half the population at the time. Even though it earned its investors Scarlett Makes Her Demands Of Rhett - Max Steiner - Gone With The Wind twice as much as the previous record-holder, The Birth of a Nation  the box-office performances of the two films were likely much closer.
The bulk of the earnings from Gone with the Wind came from its roadshow and first-run engagements, where the distributor received 70 percent and 50 percent of the box-office gross respectively, rather than its general release, which at the time typically saw the distributor's share set at 30—35 percent of the gross.
Carl E. Millikensecretary of the Motion Picture Producers and Distributors Associationestimated that The Birth of a Nation had been seen by fifty million people by The reissue was unusual in that MGM opted to roadshow it, a decision that turned it into the most successful re-release in the history of the industry.
The film remains immensely popular with audiences into the 21st century, having been voted the most popular film in two nationwide polls of Americans undertaken by Harris Scarlett Makes Her Demands Of Rhett - Max Steiner - Gone With The Wind inand again in The market research firm surveyed over two thousand U. Scarlett Makes Her Demands Of Rhett - Max Steiner - Gone With The Wind Film Institute . In revisiting the film in the s, Arthur Schlesinger noted that Hollywood films generally age well, revealing an unexpected depth or integrity, but in the case of Gone with the Wind time has not treated it kindly.
Sarris concedes that despite its artistic failings, the film does hold a mandate around the world as the "single most beloved entertainment ever produced". The film has featured in several high-profile industry polls: in it was voted the most popular film by the American Film Institute AFIin a poll of the organization's membership;  the AFI also ranked the film fourth on its " Greatest Movies " list in with it slipping down to sixth place in the tenth anniversary edition in Gone with the Wind has been criticized as having perpetuated Civil War myths and black stereotypes.
Various - Yabba-Dabba-Dance!, in the background, the black slaves are mostly dutiful and content, clearly incapable of an independent existence. Bryan Rommel Ruiz has argued that despite factual inaccuracies in its depiction of the Reconstruction period, Gone with the Wind nevertheless reflects contemporary interpretations that were common in the early 20th century.
One such viewpoint is reflected in a brief scene in which Mammy fends off a leering freedman : a government official can be heard offering bribes to the emancipated slaves for their votes. The inference is taken to be that freedmen are ignorant about politics and unprepared for freedom, unwittingly becoming the tools of corrupt Reconstruction officials. While perpetuating some Lost Cause myths, the film makes concessions in regard to others. After the attack on Scarlett in the shanty town, a group of men including Scarlett's husband Frank, Rhett Butler, and Ashley raid the town; in the novel they belong to the Ku Klux Klan, representing the common trope of protecting the white woman's virtue, but the filmmakers consciously neutralize the presence of the Klan in the film by referring to it only as a "political meeting".
Thomas Cripps reasons that the film in some respects undercuts racial stereotypes;  in particular, the film created greater engagement between No Pain, No Gain - Various - The Super Mix Album (Phillys Favorite Remixes) and black audiences,  with dozens of movies making small gestures in recognition of the emerging trend.
More than any film since The Birth of a Nationit unleashed a variety of social forces that foreshadowed an alliance of white liberals and blacks who encouraged the expectation that blacks would one day achieve equality.
According to Cripps, the film eventually became a template for measuring social change. InGone with the Wind was pulled from the schedule at the Orpheum Theatre in Memphis, Tennessee, after a year run of annual showings due to its perceived racially insensitive content.
One of the most notorious and widely condemned scenes in Gone with the Wind depicts what is now legally defined as " marital rape ". Molly Haskell has argued that, nevertheless, women Scarlett Makes Her Demands Of Rhett - Max Steiner - Gone With The Wind mostly uncritical of the scene, Fare Thee Well, Annabelle - The Dave Brubeck Quartet - Jazz: Red Hot And Cool that by and large it is consistent with what women have in mind if they fantasize about being raped.
Their fantasies revolve around love and romance rather Billy Joel - Greatest Hits Volume I & Volume II forced sex; they will assume that Scarlett was not an unwilling sexual partner and wanted Rhett to take the initiative and insist on having sexual intercourse. Gone with the Wind and its production have been explicitly referenced, satirized, dramatized and analyzed on numerous occasions across a range of media, from contemporaneous works such as Second Fiddle —a film spoofing the "search for Scarlett"—to current television shows, such as The Simpsons.
Following publication of her novel, Margaret Mitchell was inundated with requests for a sequel but claimed to not have a notion of what happened to Scarlett and Rhett, and that she had "left them to their ultimate fate". Mitchell continued to resist pressure from Selznick and MGM to write a sequel until her death in Anne Edwards was commissioned to write the sequel as a novel which would then be adapted into a screenplay, and published in conjunction with the film's release.
Edwards submitted a page manuscript entitled Tara, The Continuation of Gone with the Windset between and focusing on Scarlett's divorce from Rhett; MGM was not satisfied with the story and the deal collapsed. The idea was revived in the s, when a sequel was finally produced inin the form of a television miniseries.
Scarlett was based upon the novel by Alexandra Ripleyitself a sequel to Mitchell's book. British actors Joanne Whalley and Timothy Dalton were cast as Scarlett and Rhett, and the series follows Scarlett's relocation to Ireland after again becoming pregnant by Rhett. George [Cukor] finally told me all about it. He hated [leaving the production] very much he said but he could not do otherwise. In effect he said he is an honest craftsman and he cannot do a job unless he knows it is a good job and he feels the present job is not right.
For days, he told me he has looked at the rushes and felt he was failing Gradually he became convinced that the script was the trouble David [Selznick], himself, thinks HE is writing the script And George has continually taken script from Scarlett Makes Her Demands Of Rhett - Max Steiner - Gone With The Wind to day, compared the [Oliver] Garrett-Selznick version with the [Sidney] Howard, groaned and tried to change some parts back to the Howard script.
But he seldom could do much with the scene So George just told David he would not work any longer if the script was not better and he wanted the Howard script back.

Bonnie, looking like a miniature Scarlett, wants to go home, and her father promises they will go right away. Very possibly - his daughter's nightmares remind him of her mother's on their honeymoon. But when he greets Scarlett on the enormous staircase he had carried her up the last night he was there, she tells him coldly that she is pregnant with another baby.

While Melanie and Scarlett are alone, Melanie asks Scarlett to look after her husband, Ashley, and to never stop loving Rhett, who loves Scarlett very much. Scarlett Makes Her Demands Of Rhett - Max Steiner - Gone With The Wind dies just after, and Ashley is extremely upset.
Scarlett finally realizes how much Melanie meant to Ashley, and that Scarlett could never have meant so much to him, and also finally realizes that despite her jealousy and negative thoughts over the years about Melanie, she was truly her best and most beloved friend. And as she finally has these revelations, she also finally comes to the realization while running through the fog - home to her husband, that this is her nightmare, and the meaning of it is that Rhett truly is the man she loves and wants to be with.
Scarlett hurries home to find Rhett and tell him how much she loves him, but he tells her he wants a divorce because he feels like she never loved him. He is still very hurt by losing Bonnie, his daughter, and he leaves Scarlett sitting alone on the stairs, alone and unwanted for the first time in her life.
