Swept Away

Rhett and Scarlett from “Gone With The Wind” 1939

So…I got swept away in a whirlwind of research. In other words, I’ve spent weeks working on a series, trying to put Gone With The Wind as a movie in some context. The results appeared on Emerging Civil War blog originally and here are the links.

Gone With The Wind: Some Thoughts, Part 1 – the introduction and readable thesis statement

Gone With The Wind: Some Thoughts, Part 2 – Hattie McDaniel’s life and movie role

Gone With The Wind: Some Thoughts, Part 3 – the movie in 1930’s & 1940’s Hollywood and society

Gone With The Wind: Some Thoughts, Part 4 – feelings associated with the movie over the decades

Gone With The Wind: Some Thoughts, Part 5 – thinking about the movie as a form of art

Happy reading?
