* ScarletFever: The TropeCodifier. Many female characters named Scarlett (with one or two T's) are some kind of ShoutOut to Miss O'Hara.

It is Ted Turner's favorite movie, and it was the first broadcast program on both TNT and Creator/{{TCM}}; a theater at the CNN Center also played it for many years until it was taken out and replaced by additional newsroom space for CNN's web operations.

* DeathOfAChild: Not only does Scarlett miscarry, her daughter Bonnie is killed in a riding accident. These two incidents put the nail in the coffin of Scarlett and Rhett's marriage.



* InfantImmortality: Averted. [[spoiler: Poor Bonnie...]]

* OlderThanTheyLook: In the book, Melanie is described as having a underdeveloped, childlike figure. Probably not intentionally FetishFuel, as Ashley is implied to prefer Scarlett's physical attributes.

** If you think about it, Rhett fits this trope too. No matter how much or how many times Scarlett hurts him, he just keeps snarking along, never once revealing his pain at her actions.

Added DiffLines:

* TraumaCongaLine: Within one year, Scarlett miscarries the first child she really wanted, loses her favorite living child, loses her best friend, the man she thought she loved, and the man she did love. It's even worse in the movie, where all this happens over a matter of ''days''.

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Stuart Tarleton is annoyed that Cade Calvert's Yankee stepmother is afraid of him and thinks Southerners are barbarians. Brent points out that this is because Stuart ''' ''shot her stepson in the leg.'' ''' Stuart brushes this off as him being 'lickered up' at the time, and, after all, nobody else minded.

* CannotSpitItOut: Rhett does confess his feelings to Scarlett a few times, but he invariably subverts his confessions by chickening out and convincing her he's making fun of her. He justifies this by saying that if she knew about his feelings, she'd make his life a living hell; but it becomes more and more obvious as the story progresses that she's already done that.
** Not to mention that Rhett outright lies, once or twice, when Scarlett asks him point-blank if he's in love with her. Once, when Scarlett reveals that she's been considering an abortion, Rhett reacts in outrage and horror, and then when the amazed Scarlett tells him she didn't know he cared that much about her, he switches gears and casually replies that he just doesn't want to lose a good investment.
*** Leading to the sad irony that Scarlett falls victim to this herself. By the time she begins to realize that she cares about Rhett, she's just as reluctant to tell him for the very reasons that he couldn't tell her--she's afraid he will mock and reject her.
*** Scarlett would have given up on Ashley if he had just told her he truly loves Melanie.
*** Scarlett never getting a chance to explain to Rhett that the embrace she and Ashley were caught in was completely innocent.
