480) Gone with the Wind (1939)

480) Gone with the Wind (1939) Dir: Victor Fleming, George Cukor and Sam Wood Date Released: December 15, 1939 Date Seen: November 26, 2011 Rating: 4.5/5

Oh, so that's what all the hubbub's about, huh? Pretty absorbing throughout, as advertised. The costumes and the cinematography are especially great. And holy shit, Clark Gable! And pretty pretty, sexy pexy Vivien Leigh, guh...

 I still have a very soft spot for Duel in the Sun, mega-producer David O. Selznick's attempt to capture lightning in a bottle twice and recreate Gone with the Wind's success. But Gone with the Wind is pretty much in a league of its own, yas. Don't know why but as I write this, I have a sudden urge to watch Song of the South...anyone got a copy and/or is willing to burn it for me? Huh? Anyone, anyone?
