3.5 stars. Vivien Leigh is the best reason to see this film. Yes, it is entertaining but it runs out of steam in part two. The performances are scaled to fit the epic size but they are also without any depth. Not so Leigh. She gives Scarlett such complexity and stubbornness that you keep rooting for her.
Immersed by the plot. how this film depicts a silver-spooned Scarlett O'hara became a thoughtful woman. Despite of her foolishness by choosing fortune over love, this is a great story. and I love Clark Gable's character here. he's the star of this classic film.
Bof, il faut l'avoir vu pour y croire et pourtant, le public marche à chaque fois, paraît-il. On peut se poser bien des questions sur la pérennité d'une oeuvre et son impact à travers les générations. Il faut reconnaître tout de même à cette production d'être "un grand spectacle" mais cinématographiquement parlant, c'est quelconque.

Gone with the Wind is an quintessential masterpiece that every film fan should see at some point in their life. Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh and Hattie McDaniel deliver performances for the ages. This film broke boundaries with McDaniel being the first African American to win an Academy Award. However, it does feel a bit dated, especially in some of the scenes dealing with race and women's rights.
