 +
 +Margaret Mitchell (1900-1949) became one of the most famous American writers with the publication of her novel, "Gone With the Wind" in 1936. She drew from her own background as a woman growing up in the South, but she also based her story on the controversial history of the South.
 +Mitchell started out as a journalist, with her earliest articles appearing in the "​Journal"​ in 1922. She began writing "Gone with the Wind" in 1926, though she may never have published the book had she not been angrily goaded into allowing the vice president of Macmillian, Harold Latham, to read the novel. The rest, as they say, is history...
 +
 +Gone with the Wind is a 1939 American epic historical romance film adapted from Margaret Mitchell'​s Pulitzer-winning 1936 novel. Set in the 19th-century American South, the film tells the story of Scarlett O'​Hara,​ played by Vivien Leigh, and her romantic pursuit of Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard) who is married to his cousin, Melanie Hamilton (Olivia de Havilland), and her marriage to Rhett Butler (Clark Gable). Set against the backdrop of the American Civil War and Reconstruction era, the story is told from the perspective of southerners.
 +
 +The film received good reviews upon its release in December 1939, although some reviewers found it dramatically lacking and bloated. The casting was widely praised and many reviewers found Vivien Leigh especially suited to her role as Scarlett. At the 12th Academy Awards held in 1940, it received ten Academy Awards (eight competitive,​ two honorary) from thirteen nominations,​ including wins for Best Picture, Best Director (Victor Fleming), Best Adapted Screenplay (posthumously awarded to Sidney Howard), Best Actress (Vivien Leigh) and Best Supporting Actress (Hattie McDaniel). It set new records for the total number of wins and nominations at the time. The film was immensely popular becoming the highest-earning film made up to that point, and retained the record for over a quarter of a century.
 +
 +It was re-released periodically throughout the 20th century and became ingrained in popular culture. It has been referenced, parodied and analyzed on numerous occasions. Adjusted for inflation, it is the most successful film in box-office history, and has placed in the top ten of the American Film Institute'​s list of top 100 American films since the list's inception in 1998. In 1989, Gone with the Wind was selected to be preserved by the National Film Registry. No longer copyright here it is, enjoy.
