Filmed between December 1938 and November 1939 (having been in development since just after the book's publication in 1936) in glorious Technicolor, starring Creator/VivienLeigh as Scarlett and Creator/ClarkGable as Rhett. Interestingly, director Victor Fleming was also the director of another legendary Technicolor film from that year - ''Film/TheWizardOfOz''.

Possibly the most successful film of all time -- adjusted for inflation its box office take would be 1.6 billion, 200 million more than similarly adjusted StarWars [[note]] It alone managed to dethrone Creator/WaltDisney's ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'' from two years prior [[/note]]-- ''Gone with the Wind'' is a romantic epic about Scarlett O'Hara, an indomitable and ruthless Southern belle, stretching from just before UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar through much of Reconstruction.

** Scarlett to Sueellen about having to root out the cotton because they need the money and there's no one else to do it. And part of the reason why [[spoiler:Scarlett steals away Frank is because she correctly deducts that [[GoldDigger Suellen]] wouldn't let Frank lend the money to save Tara, wanting to be a TrophyWife.]]

-->'''Rhett''': [[YouNeedToGetLaid You need kissing badly. That's what's wrong with you. You should be kissed, and often]], and by someone who knows how.
-->'''Scarlett''': (When she first sees Rhett looking at her) He looks as if--as if he knows what I look like without my shimmy.

* ValuesDissonance: Racial inequality is never questioned and is continually framed as if it is a natural and just state. Makes sense given that it was written by a white Southern woman. The book is far worse compared to the movie which tones down or omits some of the more noxious narration in regards to race, but both the book and the film are very much products of their time. Also, Rhett's ravishing of Scarlett is uncomfortable to modern audiences.

* 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.
