Vivien Leigh, Clark Gable, Olivia de Havilland, Leslie Howard, Hattie McDaniel, dir: Victor Fleming; Selznick International Pictures/Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. The epic American Civil War melodrama which has captured the hearts and imaginations of fans for generations— the story or a strong willed young woman who perseveres and succeeds— she and the characters in this story still inspire. Made during Hollywood’s Golden Year, it won most of the major Academy Awards and to this day many feel well deserved, particularly those for Vivien Leigh for Best Actress and the unprecedented Best Supporting Actress to Hattie McDaniel.
Seldom do oversized exhibition quality prints of this type, including their original attached typed blurbs on the verso come to the collectors market. They are unsurpassed in quality.
SIP 108-P 169 Depicts Thomas Mitchell in a formal portrait as the healthy Gerald O’Hara. Thomas Mitchell, 47 at the time went from a strapping middle aged man to a ghost like presence after the death of his wife. A monumental year for Mitchell, he appeared in 5 of the major Academy Award classic films of 1939. In addition to WIND, there was ONLY ANGELS HAVE WINGS, MR. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON, and THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME and in his Academy Award winning Best Supporting Actor turn in STAGECOACH. Indeed he won for his body of work. Minor corner creases only. ABOUT FINE.
