* The ending, when Rhett rebuffs Scarlett's genuine entreaties and leaves her. No matter how much you might dislike her (and with good reason), you realize, this is a woman who within approximately one year (and even less time in the movie) has lost an unborn child (the first one she really wanted), her living child (her favorite), her best friend, the man she thought she loved and now the man she ''did'' love. That is ''hard''.

* Melanie's death.



* Mammy telling Melly what Rhett and Scarlett have been saying to each other since Bonnie died. In particular (in the movie, at least), when she says that Rhett has been refusing to allow the funeral because, he says, he won't put Bonnie in the dark, because she's afraid of it. Couple this with how much he doted on his daughter and his refusal to allow the 'leave her to scream' policy (at a time when it was common practice!), and it's bad. But then imagine, instead of Mammy's tearful words to Melanie, Rhett yelling it through the door with his voice cracking...
** Bonnie's death itself is real sad as well.
* In the scene in the movie when they get the casualty lists from Gettysburg there's a band playing a cheerful melody. One of the boys in the band has just found out his brother has been killed and cries while he plays.

** Melanie's death scene, and the one immediately afterward, when Scarlett finally realizes that Ashley loves his wife more than he ever will her.

** It becomes even more sad considering Rhett, who has ''loved'' Scarlett for years and put up with with her attitude, finally gives up on her and leaves just when she realized she reciprocated that love.

** Take a good look at Mammy when she's telling Scarlett what happened. That is the look of a woman who has lost the woman that she's probably raised since the time she was born and nearly lost two girls that she also helped raise. It's heartbreaking to say the least.

** What ''really'' drives the knife in is that Bonnie died ''the exact same way'' was Scarlett's father. In the movie, Scarlett's reaction really drives it home
