Gone with the Wind: Another Gala

Published: August 20, 2009

Time doesn’t dim the allure of Gone with the Wind, and the spotlights will blaze into the night again this November for “Seventy Years of Gone with the Wind: A Re-Premiere” in Marietta, Georgia.

The home of the Scarlett on the Square Museum will recreate the celebration November 13 and 14, with a costume ball like the one held in 1939 and a Saturday screening of the film at the restored Strand Theater. Robert Osborne, host of Turner Classic Movies, is confirmed as emcee, and many of the remaining stars, such as Ann Rutherford, who played Carreen O’Hara, and Cammie King, who played Bonnie Blue Butler, will appear. Organizers are planning a first-ever GWTW writers’ forum, including Herb Bridges, who amassed the world’s largest GWTW collection, and Molly Haskell, author of the 2009 retrospective Frankly, My Dear: Gone with the Wind Revisited.

    This looks very similar to Paulette Goddard’s ballgown in Reap the Wild Wind, and also the ball gown that appeared in Young Victoria. I wonder if those costumes were inspired by this one.
