Gone With the Wind

What to Know

Critics Consensus

Gone with the Wind's epic grandeur and romantic allure encapsulate an era of Hollywood filmmaking -- but that can't excuse a blinkered perspective that stands on the wrong side of history.

Otis Ferguson The New Republic Gone with the Wind stands around on its own foot purely out of size and story complexity... They threw in many good things, and everything else but a towel. May 8, 2024 Full Review SMH Staff Sydney Morning Herald Clark Gable sends a refreshing blast of cynicism through a narrative which otherwise would have been over-sweet. Feb 5, 2020 Full Review Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune "Gone With the Wind" offers the kind of big, rich, opulent experience the movies are in a unique position to offer but seldom do. Rated: 4/4 Jan 29, 2019 Full Review Mark Johnson Awards Daily The performances, set designs, costumes, Technicolor photography, and Max Steiner’s exhilarating score keep this film as bewildering and extravagant a film today as it ever was. Jun 8, 2023 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review It remains the most seen film in cinema history, not only because Selznick produced a monumental motion picture of immaculate quality, but because he knew how to sell it as an event. Rated: 4/4 Mar 18, 2022 Full Review W. Ward Marsh Cleveland Plain Dealer The entire cast is about as flawless as I have ever seen in one picture. Feb 5, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
