Gone With the Wind: From Printed Page to Silver Screen
October 31 and November 7, 2013 | Time: 5:30–7:00 pm
By John Wiley, Jr.
On the eve of the 75th anniversary of the motion picture Gone With the Wind, discover how the novel by Margaret Mitchell and the film by David O.
Selznick became the most popular entertainment phenomenon of the 20th century. The first session (October 31) will explore how Mitchell created Scarlett O'Hara and then spent the rest of her life minding Scarlett's business. The second session (November 7) will study the making of the motion picture, which gripped the public's interest for three-and-a-half years and broke box-office records that stood for decades. Along the way, participants will also learn about Virginia's connections to both book and film. John Wiley, Jr., is the coauthor of Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind: A Bestseller's Odyssey from Atlanta to Hollywood and editor of the forthcoming My Scarlett, a collection of Mitchell's letters about the film.
