The Wall Street Journal today (Dec. 12) has an interesting article on GWTW.

Here is the link to the story. I love the film Gone with the Wind even though I've   only seen it twice, (once since I've read the book). It's one of the best films of all time. It's worth it to read the book before you see the movie. 

An article worth reading:

Good article. Thanks for the link. I think the author hit it on the head: the movie is good entertainment, but I think the book tells us more about the lost cause movement than it does about Civil War Georgia.

What amazes me as I have done more and more genealogy, especially on my family in Mississippi during and after the war, is how right on this movie is...the scene where Ashley comes home never fails to move me, as I recall how one of my ancestors walked home from North Carolina after the surrender.  My gg-grandfather was financially ruined, two of his sons died in Yankee prison camps and another at Peachtree Creek....oh yeah, it's more than a "Lost Cause" rehash
