Producing Gone With the Wind

From the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin comes the digital exhibition Producing Gone with the Wind. This meticulously researched exhibition takes its visitors behind the scenes of the beloved 1939 film to learn how it came to be. Based heavily on archival material from the Ransom Center's David O. Selznick Collection, this exhibition begins by exploring director David O. Selznick's purchase of the film rights from Gone with the Wind's author Margaret Mitchell. The film's arduous casting process receives a thorough treatment here, particularly with regards to Selznick's search for the perfect Scarlett O'Hara. Producing Gone with the Wind also pays close attention to the film's research-intensive costume designs, as well as its hair and makeup. While Scarlett's designs receive the bulk of the scrutiny, other characters' aesthetics are also addressed. An in-depth presentation, this exhibition is sure to please classic film buffs and Gone with the Wind fans alike.
