    Im from the south born and reared,I love the beauty and charm of the south!And i love…GONE WITH THE WIND.. a little over done at times,but hey (wow)And when they loved they loved and when they hated they hate (so tragic ) you want her to stop being so selfish and immature. I could go on and on
    I loved them both and i couldn’t imagine anyone else playing ither of thier roles!
    Thank you for the movie ! Ive never read the book.
    Thank you

    This “interview,” though well written, is obviously fiction. There is no wedding scene between Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh in GWTW. And there was certainly no wedding march. The marriage to Rhett was Scarlett’s third. Additionally, I’d like to know how Clark Gable and Leslie Howard had “somehow never met” when they co-starred with Norma Shearer in A Free Soul. In fact, Leslie Howard’s character murders Gable’s character. Also, Gable didn’t read GWTW six times before the movie was shot. He didn’t read it at all until they were well into shooting. This article gives more nsight into the fan journalism of the day than to any of the stars’ lives or thoughts.

    Most of the fan magazines are this way. Although I agree it is a rather frothy article, there is truth to it in several places, the Carole Lombard wedding is all accurate. There was a wedding scene filmed apparently though, and it was cut.

    This is an excellent article , and it does sound like Mr. Gable is talking just to me!! i would appreciate it if no one would not make negative comments about Scarlett O’Hara . She was a wonderful survivor , and if a man was selfish that would be fine!! If it weren’t for her , the entire family would have been in the street!

    She isn’t the first woman who loves two entirely different men as Margret Mitchell did in real life!!

    I am from the Low Country of South Carolina, Southern born and bred!!

    Vivien & Carole Lombard are the only actresses I have ever cared enough about to buy biographies about. They were both very interesting women.
    It’s sad that both died too young and Vivien had TB as well as manic depression and people didn’t understand it at the time & Olivier left her because of it. Vivien couldn’t help it.
