I saw that on the news yesterday. I always thought it was so neat that her last name was Rhett. I sure do love that movie. My friends and I all read the book the summer between 7th and 8th grade and were dying to see the movie. We though we never would, in those pre-VCR days, but then that February it came on TV for the first time. It was a two night affair and we were glued to our TVs!
I always thought it was funny that her last name was Rhett, too. I read the book in 6th grade and grew up watching the movie on the big screen each summer in my hometown. It's such a great movie to watch with an appreciative audience, who laughs at the funny parts, boo Ashley and cheer Rhett, etc.
Next year is the 75th anniversary of the film, so I have my fingers crossed that the local theater will run it.
