Frankly, My Dear: The REEL Story Behind Gone With the Wind

“Gone With the Wind” has been called “the most magnificent motion picture of all time.” And millions of fans agree. But what most fans don’t know is that endless trouble and months of behind-the-scenes turmoil almost doomed “Gone With the Wind” to failure.  Explore the intriguing history of this iconic 1939 film, including the writing and publishing of Margaret Mitchell’s novel, the Hollywood frenzy of transforming the book into film, the Atlanta premiere, the Academy Awards, and more. This course is taught remotely via Zoom.  You will need your Hudson Valley username and password to access the course.
