The epic tale of love and the Civil War, “Gone With the Wind,” will return to the Mars Theatre screen Thursday.
The 1939 film, starring Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh, Leslie Howard and Olivia de Havilland, will be shown Thursday at 6 p.m. and Friday at 7 p.m. at the Mars in Springfield.
Doors will open each night one hour before showtime. The movie is 3 hours, 58 minutes long. Tickets are $6.
The movie is based on the 1936 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name by Atlanta author Margaret Mitchell. It was produced by David O. Selznick of Selznick International Pictures and directed by Victor Fleming. Set in the 19th-century American South, the film tells the story of Scarlett O’Hara, the strong-willed daughter of a Georgia plantation owner, from her romantic pursuit of Ashley Wilkes, who is married to his cousin, Melanie Hamilton, to her marriage to Rhett Butler against the backdrop of the American Civil War and Reconstruction.
