A gray Saturday in February.  Too icky to go out, yet looking for something to do.  Hmmm, there’s this brand new TV sitting idly by… maybe a movie would be a good idea.  What would be more perfect on a cold, wintry, February day than…..


One of the top 4 all time movie classics…


‘Gone With The Wind’ has it all.  Romance, deceit, war, unrequited love,  more romance, more deceit, end of the war,death, Vivian Leigh, Clark Gable, beautiful cinematography and one of the top movie songs of all time, ‘Tara’s Theme.’

Since it’s a long movie, and it’s on 2 discs we decided to watch disc one in the afternoon and disc two in the evening.  I was a looooong intermission.  Which was good because shortly after we finished disc one our electricity went out for a few hours and we would have been left wondering what happened.



It was nice revisiting this classic movie after about 25 years.  They don’t make movies like this anymore and I hope they never remake this one. ‘Gone With The Wind’ is a classic that, in my opinion, could never be recreated.  The shadowy lighting alone in some scenes is mesmerizing, and done with such finesse and subtly that you sometimes don’t realize the impact it has.


For anyone who’s interested… here’s a link (CLICK HERE) to some interesting trivia facts about ‘Gone With The Wind’.

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)
