On this day 80 years ago, the film ‘Gone With The Wind’ premiered in Atlanta Georgia.

The film, one of the most famous and iconic releases ever, was based on a 1936 novel by Margaret Mitchell, a fraught, romantic and ultimately tragic story of the American Civil War and its aftermath in the South.

The film also starred two of Hollywood’s greats, the beautiful British Actress, Vivien Leigh and the impossibly handsome Clark Gable.
