Now in its 75th anniversary year, Gone With The Wind is still an example of phenomenal movie making to this day. Set in the 19th century of the south, Gone With The Wind is an epic love story full of sorrow and triumph. Miss Scarlett O’Hara, the strong-willed daughter of a plantation owner, takes center stage and carries us away to her world. With her unrelenting determination and sorrowful story, us girls love to imagine what it was like to live in a world and generation like that. Before the movie, was the book written by Margaret Mitchell, it captured readers during the harsh times of the Great Depression and resonated back to what they went through. Set in the background of the Civil War and Reconstruction Era, we are transported back to a time of pomp and circumstance and old southern values. Not only a great movie in general, but a great historical reference. We highly suggest you go out and rent Gone With The Wind if you have never seen it!
From the fashions to the staging to the acting and more, Gone With The Wind is the ultimate classic movie filled with everything we love. We find ourselves swept away by the symphony of social hierarchy and glorifying acting each time we turn it on. After all, the movie did win 10 Academy Awards in 1940, including an award won by our favorite Hattie McDaniel, or rather known as Mammy in the movie.
In honor of its anniversary we are creating the ultimate Gone With The Wind tabletop design. And as Scarlett would say, “Tara! Home. I'll go home. And I'll think of some way to get him back. After all... tomorrow is another day.”
“Fiddledee dee!”- Scarlett O’Hara
