Gone With the Wind

This historical epic, based on Margaret Mitchell's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, about the Civil War and Reconstruction from the point of view of white Southerners is as American as grits and biscuits. Despite ample criticism of it's idyllic portrayal of Southern gentility and race relations, this ten-time Oscar winning picture has earned a place in film history, ranked fourth among AFI's 100 Greatest Films of All Time.
