AMERICAN MASTERS

The Grand Premiere

  • Aired: 04/02/2012

  • Rating: NR
The premiere of the blockbuster movie Gone With the Wind took place in Atlanta on December 15, 1939. With crowds swelling to the hundreds of thousands, it was apparent the South had been waiting a long time for this moment. For many, Margaret Mitchell's story of survival helped to redeem the South from decades of pain and suffering experienced after the Civil War and Reconstruction.
