Gone With The Wind

"Vivien Leigh was the most photogenic person. The camera loved her. Every closeup was a work of art. She was also a brilliant actress whose most famous role was that of Scarlett O’Hara in Gone With The Wind.

Her husband Lawrence Olivier worshipped her. So did funny-man Danny Kaye. Vivien had quite a range!"

Gone With the Wind what a great story Vivien Leigh was the only one that could have played Scarlett and Clark was was Rhett. when they did the film Scarlett and had Timothy Dalton as Rhett was a greatest miscasting ever I think Tom Selleck would have done better and I can’t even remember who played Scarlett

My most favourite movie ,loved it since I first saw it 35 years ago.have seen it 10 times since. Ms Leigh was unique. I’d love to have something from the movie to cherish and remember her and the movie by,and eventually have to pass on to my girls who love it too.

I have not only read the book twice,, but I have seen the movie at least 10 times or more…I could star in the movie I know all the lines..and I would love to play Scarlett!!!!!! I absolutely
think this is the greatest movie ever made… Omar Sharif and Julie Christie did give them a run for the money!!! In Dr. Z oh my can’t spell!!
