New Library Digital Collection Commemorates the 75th Anniversary of Gone with the Wind
This week marks the 75th anniversary of the premiere of David O. Selznik’s Gone with the Wind, a film that these many years later remains a mainstay in American popular culture. To commemorate the anniversary of the movie’s release, the Birmingham Public Library’s webmaster and the Department of Archives and Manuscripts created the digital collection Gone with the Wind and Back Again: Birmingham and an Indelible American Film. Made up of newspaper articles, an illustrated Gone with the Wind program, and letters from Gone with the Wind author Margaret Mitchell to former Birmingham mayor George Ward, this collection highlights a number of connections between Gone with the Wind and the Magic City while also placing these documents and the film itself in their broader historical and cultural contexts.
The digital collection can be viewed at http://www.bplonline.org/resources/exhibits/GWTW/default.aspx
