Seventy Five Years later it is showing again!!
I am going and eating popcorn and drinking soda and candy!!
And yes I will be sobbing...so giant box of tissues please.
Ever since I read the novel back in 1967..and sobbed through the last chapters, I have loved loved this story.
My mother took pity on me and took me to see it in Philadelphia for it's 30th anniversary in 1967. I remember as we left the theater I was determined to write Mr. Gable. Mom laughed herself silly...she did say if I found his address let her know. He was in Heaven.
SO..now I am going to the movies again. To fall in love with Mr. Gable. To enjoy Mammy's common sense.
To cry with Melanie and Scarlett and Mr. O' Hara.
Am I a crazy lady...sure...but it is a tremendous story and fabulous movie.
Also, now I go with a much greater appreciation for the costuming and the
HEIRLOOM styles/sewing of that Civil War period.
[Fun part...at 16 I also had a 19 inch waist..yes I did]
Just sigh...OH Rhett
September 28th and October 1st.
You may see me at all shows.
"Frankly my dear...I don't give a Damn.."
