Book Description:
_Gone with the Wind_ is one of the most beloved novels and movies in U.S. history. Margaret Mitchells Pulitzer Prize winning novel has sold millions of copies worldwide, and has been translated into many languages. The movie, produced by David O. Selznick, is one of the most watched in cinema history. With Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable, the cast was most memorable. But with all of the books and videos, one event is usually forgotten: the premiere of the movie in Atlanta.

This is now remedied with the fourth book on GWTW by noted author Herb Bridges. From December 13 to 15, 1939, the city of Atlanta was transformed into the envy of the nation. On the brink of World War II, Atlanta welcomed Hollywood to the South to celebrate the movie that would commemorate the American Civil War and its devastating effect on the South. With Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh, David O. Selznick, Olivia de Havilland, and many others, the premiere was the social and cultural event of the century in Atlanta.

This photographic essay contains photos of the stars themselves, Atlanta before, during, and after the premiere, and the citizens of the city who turned out not just for the premiere, but for the other events such as the Grand Ball. From movie stars to horse drawn carriages, from a transformed theater to GWTW merchandise, this is the book that takes us back to an event often neglected in the _Gone with the Wind_ story.
