It's an epic production but an epic story I think not.

Gone with the Wind is legendary and changed cinema history, but is a highly overrated cheesy soap opera of epic proportion that is filled with Vivien Leigh constantly crying.

Racist piece of confederate propaganda. One of the more shameful pieces of cinema that I've had the misfortune of watching.

Well even if you’re too sensitive to watch it, it is still a piece of art. It’s a great look at what the south was like during that time. Why would you even watch a movie about the south during the civil war, and expect it not to contain racist content? It seems like you went into it ready to be mad and waiting for something to complain about.

The movie takes place during the Civil War, so that is to be expected if it wants to be historically accurate. Nobody's making you watch the movie. If it's going to ruin the movie for you, then don't watch it. Simple as that.

The film is incredible, it shows the downfall of the confederacy and former slave owners getting what they deserved and suffering, also given Clark gables heartwarming real life friendship with hattie McDaniel, almost boycotting the Premier because she wasn't allowed to attend until she was able to talk him out of it. It shouldn't be loved for the time period it took place, it should be loved because the incredible acting and whole production which was extraordinary.

Stunning filmmaking for 1939. Breathtaking cinematography and Steiner's score was crazy good but it's a complete snooze fest of a story. At least it's execution for film. Unlikable petty characters and I had my fix in for it about an hour and 30 in. No movie should be 4 flippin' hours..come on. Yes, ok I guess watching Scarlet's world burn around her should have been a catharsis experience but the effect was lost on me after an hour or so. I simply didn't have any feeling while watching this aside from pointing out how breathtaking some of those shots were.
