Deconstructing: Gone with the Wind

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

It’s been three-quarters of a century since David O. Selznick’s Gone with the Wind won best picture, yet Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler’s epic romance—with both each other and the Old South—continues to haunt America’s collective conscience. Considered one of the most enduring films of all time, panelists will discuss why Selznick’s masterpiece leaves you wanting two of the big screen’s most detestable characters to find happiness more than anything else. Join this panel if you do give a damn about the multitudes of ways Gone with the Wind can contribute to your own epic romance with your writing career.

This panel is co-presented by the Harry Ransom Center.
