*Gone With The Wind*
Against this most turbulent period of America's history, there is a drama of love, tragedy, heroism and pointless death.
A lifestyle, celebrated by the advantaged white population, is torn from the Old South who are left to pick up the pieces of a privileged position.
Scarlett O'Hara is a wilful, spoiled, Southern belle, who enjoys the adoration and flattery of every young bachelor in the country, except the one person she has set her heart on, Ashley Wilkes.
When Scarlett discovers this, she plans to make him change his mind at the forthcoming Wilkes' Barbeque.
And yet, later in the movie, in total contrary to this, we see a new Scarlett. Throughout the film, we see Scarlett grow from a manipulative, vain beauty, into a hardened determined young woman. She, who had been robbed of her glorious lifestyle, made a vow.
She says, "As God is my witness, as God is my witness they're not going to lick me! I'm going to live through this and when it's all over, I'll never be hungry again! No, nor any of my folk. If I have to lie, steal, cheat or kill! As God is my witness, I'll never be hungry again!"
