Produced by David O. Selznick, directed by Victor Fleming, and adapted from Margaret Mitchell's 1936 novel, the 1939 film Gone With the Wind tells the story of Scarlett O'Hara, the strong-willed daughter of a Georgia plantation owner and her romantic pursuit of Ashley Wilkes, who is married to his cousin, Melanie Hamilton, and her subsequent marriage to Rhett Butler. The leading roles were played by Vivien Leigh (Scarlett), Clark Gable (Rhett), Leslie Howard (Ashley), and Olivia de Havilland (Melanie). The film was immensely popular when first released and received particular praise for its casting. It became the highest-earning film made up to that point, and held that record for over a quarter of a century. It is currently regarded as one of the best films of all time and in 1989, the United States Library of Congress selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry.
