What the critics say:
Kevin Thomas,Los Angeles Times
Gone With the Wind endures and deepens with the passing of time because Scarlett and Rhett are as modern as its open ending.
John C. Flinn Sr.,Variety
One of the truly great films, destined for record-breaking boxoffice business everywhere.
Matt Brunson,Creative
Loafing here are infinite highs, beginning with Vivien Leigh's extraordinary performance as Scarlett O'Hara, one of the most fully developed characters ever depicted in American cinema.
Neil Smith, Total Film
Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh create their own sizzle as Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara in a lavish four-hour epic that juxtaposes scenes of jaw-dropping majesty with moments of elegant intimacy and playful verbal jousting.
