Some think Gone With The Wind is the best film ever made. I’m not sure I’d agree, but it certainly has been the most popular and is truly a great American film.Filmed by David O. Selznick and starring the best that Hollywood could offer this film is probably the best known American film. Selznick was required to give MGM the distribution rights in exchange for the use of Clark Gable and $1,250,000 in financing.
Before casting had actually started, Margaret Mitchell was asked (during an interview) who, she felt, should play Rhett Butler. She replied (in all seriousness), “Groucho Marx.” Well the public certainly thought differently because it was considered by most that Gable was the only one who could play Rhett Butler.
