Following the publication of Margaret Mitchell's best-selling novel, the competition to obtain screen rights for its cinematic adaptation was ferocious and the creation of the screenplay a massive task undertaken by several writers including F. Scott Fitzgerald. The result was an unprecedented commercial success, a staggering representation of Hollywood glamour of the 30s which overwhelmed audiences with lavish sets and costumes. 


All original artworks are very hard to find, and anything on this legendary title is exceptionally desirable.
