About this item
At age 75, Gone with the Wind endures magnificently and is often considered one of the best films of all time. Just as LIFE Books did so successfully with 50 years of the James Bond, the editors will look at all of the hidden corners of the Gone with the Wind saga.
The travails of getting the movie made in the 1930s were chronicled in the pages of LIFE (1,400 actresses interviewed before Vivien Leigh chosen; Selznick waited two years for Clark Gable to sign on to the project), as was the frenzy of its premiere. All of this coverage will be revisited in this lavish coffee-table edition, which also includes behind-the-scenes photography from the set, stunning pictures of the famed burning of Atlanta scene, as well as all of the fascinating, intimate photography from the making of the movie.
Furthermore, LIFE will partner with renowned southern authors to bring readers insight into the influence of the book and film on American culture. Another special chapter will photographically present a side-by-side chronicle of what Gone with the Wind claims, and what really happened during the Civil War. This book will be as informative and intriguing as it will be beautifully illustrated.

I thought I was ordering the actual NOVEL of Gone With The Wind, as that is was it appeared to be. To my surprise when the book arrived it was something about the making of the movie, NOT the actual novel. I returned it immediately.
