If any film of the past 75 years represents the pinnacle of Hollywood's Golden Age it must be GONE WITH THE WIND. Produced in 1939, a year many film historians agree was the greatest in terms of quality output by the studio system, GONE WITH THE WIND stood out as "the most magnificent film ever made." No expense was spared on the cast, production values and promotion. The film walked away with the Best Picture Oscar in 1939, outdistancing STAGECOACH, MR. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON, THE WIZARD OF OZ, and WUTHERING HEIGHTS. GONE WITH THE WIND still stands as a popular monument to the artistic triumph of producer David O. Selznick and the Hollywood system.
