Probably the best known line from a movie is the one said by Rhett Butler in Gone with the Wind – “Frankly my dear ..I dont give a damn!"
However the last words from the movie and book probably come a close second when Scarlett O'Hara says “Tara! Home. I'll go home. And I'll think of some way to get him back. After all... tomorrow is another day”
Margaret Mitchell's epic novel of love and war won the Pulitzer Prize and went on to give rise to two authorized sequels and one of the most popular and celebrated movies of all time.
Many novels have been written about the Civil War and its aftermath. None take us into the burning fields and cities of the American South as Gone With the Wind does, creating haunting scenes and thrilling portraits of characters so vivid that we remember their words and feel their fear and hunger for the rest of our lives.
Prepare to shed a tear!
