Gone with the Wind

Gone with the Wind (1939)

Factual error: Scarlett is seen walking on the main street on the way to the hospital. You can clearly see a light bulb in one of the street lights.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Scarlett is talking to Ashley about owing the carpet bagger 300 dollars right before Ashley kisses her you can see a definite change. Ashley has different dirt on his face and Scarlett's dress looks lighter. Her hair is also loose in different places.

Trivia: The Burning of Atlanta scene was shot long before filming started on Gone with the Wind and indeed before either of the actors were cast in the role of Rhett and Scarlet. The purpose of this was to clear the lot so the sets for the movie could be built. The buildings being burnt were sets from other films, the most noticeable being the huge gates featured in the original King Kong movie. The two actors in this scene were simply stunt doubles who doubled for Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable.

More quotes from Gone with the Wind


Question: I read in the trivia section that something falls out of a tree while the letters "Gone with the Wind" go across the screen. I watched the movie and it's true, but does anyone have any information about it? (Was there any controversy? What was the object? Did they try to edit it out? etc.).

Chosen answer: It looks to me like a bird flying from the tree to the ground. Nothing controversial there and no reason to edit it out.

Question: When Scarlett visits Rhett in jail to get the $300 for taxes, can anyone speculate as to her plan? Why does she pretend to be rich when she's actually dirt poor? Why would that make her request for money more convincing? Did she plan to ask for a loan, and needed to make it appear as if she would be able to repay it in a reasonable amount of time? I read the book, but this wasn't made clear there either. Can anyone help me?

Chosen answer: It's mainly a matter of pride and her skewed thinking. Scarlett tries fooling Rhett that she is in love him, and wants to appear as desirable as possible, hoping that will persuade him to give her the money. She also does not want to be seen in such a desperate state. Rhett sees through her scheme, however.

Answer: If she looked rich she could trick him into thinking she wasn't marrying him for his money.
