Gone With the Wind - Movie

1939 winner of ten Academy awards, it runs almost to four hours. But not for a moment do you feel like taking your eyes off the screen. Interestingly Margaret Mitchell's book was released in 1936 and the producers waited for two years to get Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh (picked from 1400 aspirants who were interviewed!). They are both worth the wait.

Classics any day. Remember watching it in Sangeet thirty years ago. Different kind of impact now.
