I’m a “Gone With The Wind”-er. It’s my favorite 20th Century film and my favorite book of all time. Margaret Mitchell’s command of the Civil War period and its aftermath is stunning in the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel GWTW, as she winds Fiction around substantial Facts. Movie maker David O. Selznick’s 1939 film of the same name essentially followed Mitchell’s dialogue scenes to condense the 700+ page manuscript into his three-hour movie, the first of its kind.
