  1. 1. Fashion Orientation Movie-Gone with the wind Presented byDinesh Das Kirti Dhingra Prasansha Jaiswal Richa Sinha Sohini Bhuwalka
  2. 2.  Gone with the Wind is a 1939 American epic historical romance film adapted from Margaret Mitchell's Pulitzer-winning 1936 novel  Set in the 19th-century American South, the film tells the story of Scarlett O'Hara, played by Vivien Leigh, and her romantic pursuit of Ashley Wilkes who is married to his cousin, Melanie Hamilton and her marriage to Rhett Butler  Set against the backdrop of the American Civil War and Reconstruction era, the story is told from the perspective of white Southerners
  3. 3. In 1939, movie history changed, Gone with the Wind, a literary phenomenon in its own right, was released. Making legends out of Vivien Leigh, Clark Gable, Olivia de Havilland, and Leslie Howard, this movie is often seen as the most important movie of the Golden Age of Hollywood.
  4. 4. Main characters Scarlett O'Hara:  She is an atypical protagonist. When the movie begins, Scarlett is sixteen.  She is vain, self centered, somewhat spoiled, can be insecure, and has an intelligent, bright mind. She stands out in that she is smarter than and very much unlike the typical party-going Southern belles around her.  She can be a high-strung busybody, but for someone so smart, with men she loves, she can go into a mode where she is both babyish and overthinks little things.  On the outside she seems charming, busy, good, and smart; but on the inside she is insecure.
  5. 5. Rhett Butler:  A bold, cynical rule-breaker, Rhett claims that his heroic smuggling during the war was purely for profit and that he doesn’t care what society thinks of him.  Comfortable with his wealth and the presentation of it, Rhett tries to downplay any service he performs to those around him.  Rejected by everyone in his hometown of Charleston, Rhett is drawn to Scarlett because he sees her as his soul mate in rebellion.  Despite his many problems with Scarlett as a wife and mother, Rhett loves their daughter Bonnie very deeply.

  7. 7. Time Period Gone With the Wind portrays an aspect of Southern life, the confederacy, and slavery during the Civil War time period. It also shows much of the war coming from a Southern perspective The costumes, designed by Walter Plunkett, were historically accurate for the time. Facial hair, dark jackets, bright waistcoats, and tight fitting trousers held up by suspenders for the men. For the women, Regency gowns, corsets, elaborate hats, and petticoats. Both men and women wore slippers and shoes on formal occasions, and more durable shoes everyday
  8. 8. Awards and Accolades  At the 12th Academy Awards held in 1940, Gone with the Wind set a record for Academy Award wins and nominations, winning in eight of the competitive categories it was nominated in, from a total of thirteen nominations  It won for Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Interior Decoration and Best Editing, and received two further honorary awards for its use of equipment and color (it also became the first color film to win Best Picture)  Hattie McDaniel became the first African-American to win an Academy Award—beating out her co-star Olivia de Havilland who was also nominated in the same  Screenwriter Sidney Howard became the first posthumous Oscar winner, Selznick personally received the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award for his career achievements, and Vivien Leigh won the New York Film Critics Award for Best Actress
  9. 9. Costume designs  The costumes designed by Walter Plunkett for Gone with the Wind remain among the most famous in film history for their beauty, construction and the sheer volume of them required for the film.  As Gone with the Wind was an epic being filmed in Technicolor, Selznick demanded the costumes be sensational while remaining historically accurate. Plunkett and his team created over 5,000 pieces of clothing for the principal cast and thousands of extras.  The costumes, particularly Scarlett’s gowns, covered two major historical periods (the Civil War and Reconstruction), and reflected the changing fashions of the time
