Vivien Leigh, the actress that they found perfect for Scarlett. Any woman who can wear a set of drapes like a model is A OK in my book! Too bad she and Clark Gable did NOT like each other huh? What a fabulous Epic, all in the same year of 1939, when around the corner the Wizard of Oz was being filmed. Olivia DeHaviland was fabulous as Melanie Wilkes.
