I don’t get it. Yet again.
I saw Gone With The Wind for the first time last night, and it was not at all what I was expecting.
I was expecting Doomed Romance, Love Against The Odds, Tragically Unrequited Passion. But instead it was all about arrogance, jealousy, spite, monetary greed and a rose-tinted view of a society where one person could be owned by another.
The only sympathetic characters were Melanie, Mamie and Sam – and even they were unconvincing stereotypes of “the Good Wife” and “The Loyal Servant”.
Plus, the hero had a moustache which, as we all know, is Unforgivable.
The music was good though. 🙂
