Gone With the Wind Movie Quotes (1939)

Thomas Mitchell (Gerald O'Hara): Do you mean to tell me, Katie Scarlett O'Hara, that Tara, that land doesn't mean anything to you? Why, land is the only thing in the world worth workin' for, worth fightin' for, worth dyin' for, because it's the only thing that lasts.

Thomas Mitchell (Gerald O'Hara): It will come to you, this love of the land.

Hattie McDaniel (Mammy): Oh no you ain't! If you don't care what folks says about this family, I does. And I done told you and told you, you can always tell a lady by the way she eats in front of people like a bird. And I ain't aimin' to have you go over to Mista John Wilkes' house and eat like a field hand and gobble like a hog.
Vivien Leigh (Scarlett O'Hara): Ashley Wilkes says he likes to see a girl with a healthy appetite.
Hattie McDaniel (Mammy): Well I ain't see Mista Ashley asked for to marry you.

Hattie McDaniel (Mammy):It ain't fittin' ain't fittin'. It jes' ain't fittin'.......It ain't fittin'.

Clark Gable (Rhett Butler): With enough courage, you can do without a reputation.

Clark Gable (Rhett): Take a good look my dear. It's an historic moment you can tell your grandchildren about how you watched the Old South fall one night.

Vivien Leigh (Scarlett): I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that tommorrow.

Vivien Leigh (Scarlett): 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!

Butterfly McQueen (Prissy): Lawzy, we got to have a doctor! I don't know nothin' 'bout birthin' babies!

Clark Gable(Rhett): Now that you've got your lumber mill and Frank's money, you won't come to me as you did to the jail, so I see I shall have to marry you.
Vivien Leigh (Scarlett): I never heard of such bad taste.

Clark Gable (Rhett): Did you ever think of marrying just for fun?
Vivien Leigh (Scarlett): Marriage, fun? Fiddle-dee-dee! Fun for men you mean.

Clark Gable(Rhett): No, I don't think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That's what's wrong with you! You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.

Vivien Leigh (Scarlett): Rhett, don't! I shall faint!
Clark Gable (Rhett): I want you to faint. This is what you were meant for. None of the fools you've ever know have kissed you like this, have they? Your Charles, or your Frank, or your stupid Ashley!

Vivien Leigh (Scarlett): You'd rather live with that silly little fool who can't open her mouth except to say "yes" or "no" and raise a passel of mealy-mouthed brats just like her!
Leslie Howard (Ashley Wilkes): You mustn't say unkind things about Melanie.
Vivien Leigh (Scarlett): Who are you to tell me I mustn't? You led me on... you made me believe you wanted to marry me!
Leslie Howard (Ashley): Now Scarlett, be fair. I never at any time...
Vivien Leigh (Scarlett): You did, it's true, you did!

Clark Gable (Rhett): You're like the thief who isn't the least bit sorry he stole, but is terribly, terribly sorry he's going to jail.

Vivien Leigh (Scarlett): Rhett... If you go ... where shall I go? What shall I do?
Clark Gable (Rhett): Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.

Vivien Leigh (Scarlett): After all ... tomorrow is another day.

You might well ask ...
Who beat Clark Gable for Best Actor? Robert Donat for Goodbye, Mr. Chips.
And what of Max Steiner's wonderful score? Well, he had some stiff competition. The winner in 1939 was Herbert Stothart for Wizard of Oz.

Did you know?
That Gone With the Wind was voted #4 in AFI's 100 Greatest American Movies of All Time?
That Humphrey Bogart was voted #7 Man in AFI's 50 Greatest American Screen Legends?

That the movie had two primary directors. First George Cukor who only lasted a few weeks, then Victor Fleming who was directing Wizard of Oz at the same time.

That 2,000 women were interviewed and/or tested for the role of Scarlett. The first scene filmed was the burning of Atlanta. The studio had some old sets that needed to go, so they figured, hey, we'll burn and film them. The legend says that at this exact moment, with "Atlanta" burning in the background, Vivien Leigh showed up with then boyfriend, soon to be husband, Lawrence Olivier. Producer David O. Selznick hired her.

That Gable wasn't immedialtely enthused. But they offered him a bunch of money which he needed so he could divorce current wife, Rita Langham to marry sweetheart, Carole Lombard.

That then unknown Vivien Leigh didn' get paid but $30,000 for the role of Scarlett?

For Baby Boomers. Stuart Tarleton was played by George Reeves, who we all know, became TV's Superman. And did you take a really close look at Gerald O'Hara's horse? Well, Hi-yo Silver! Yup, that horse was the Lone Ranger's beloved Silver!
