Spectcular Movie Monday


Movie Monday's are supposed to be for films I've never seen before, but this is a special exception.

Yesterday, I saw Gone With the Wind on the big screen!

(The original pre-release poster. Used via the Wiki-commons license.)

In celebration of the 75th anniversary of the movie's original preview on September 9, 1939 in Riverside, California by the producer, David Selznick, his wife, an investor, and the film editor Hal Kern the movie is being shown in select theaters across the nation this week. The movie officially premiered in Atlanta at Loew's Grand Theater on December 15th of the same year.

Now, I've read the book and seen the movie (on a TV screen) at least a half dozen times each, and the opportunity to see it in a movie theater on a huge screen in wonderful re-mastered color was a once in a lifetime opportunity.

I gratefully tagged along with a friend and her  family (thanks, Lara) rather than view it alone, though I would have and enjoyed the whole thing tremendously anyway.

What about you? Have you read the book or seen the film? Do you agree it's a classic film?
