Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
I hate to repeat myself and I’m pretty sure I’ve already mentioned this in a previous BTS pic of the day, but what are the odds you’ve read every single one of these for almost 2 years now? I really respect Gone With the Wind. It’s a gorgeously shot film and wasn’t only an instant hit, but has become one of the most iconic movies since the medium was invented. I respect the movie, but I don’t like it much.
Done throwing tomatoes? Good. The movie is 238 minutes and you feel each one of those minutes. Compare that to something like Lawrence of Arabia, which is epic as well, but that first half flies by like it’s only 20 minutes. I also never liked Scarlett or Rhett, which is kind of important since it’s a love story. However, I wouldn’t ever look down on someone who does love this movie. I get it, it just didn’t touch me in the way other classic epics like Lawrence or Doctor Zhivago did.
But never say that I’d let my cold-ish reception get in the way of my BTS duties. I’ve got a nice shot from the making of Gone With the Wind for you guys. Enjoy!

Tomorrow’s pic is hungry.
