The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day is very drunk and it intends on getting still drunker before this evening’s over.

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!

My favorite aspect of today’s picture from the set of Gone With The Wind is the way all the male crew members are either looking at Vivien Leigh with adoration or at Clark Gable with annoyance (check out the dude between the two actors to see what I mean). And do you see that mafia lookin’ dude above annoyed guy that looks like he’s about to kidnap Leigh? What’s his story?

Anyway, it’s a fun shot and I hope you guys enjoy it! Thanks to Pat Barnett for the shot. Click to enlargen!



If you have a behind the scenes shot you’d like to submit to this column, you can email me at

You’ll want to KEEP tomorrow’s pic.

    A good shot.

    by Ian Masterson

    Seriously, that guy you're talking about even has the evil "tie-you-to-the-traintracks" mustache to boot.

    OF COURSE everyone in this movie is an asshole.

    They're the Confederacy. That's like maybe half a step above Nazi. One full step, max.

    Why does the guy behind Annoyed Guy look like F. Murray Abraham?

    by Bill C.

    Yeah, I actually noticed that ahead of Vivian Leigh. Grrr. Did FMA Timecop us somehow?

    by LT Weezie

    I have it recorded on my Betamax....the ad shows him alone on a stark set, and he says "By the time you see this, I will be dead..." Absolutely chilling. I lost my best friend to COPD 7 years ago. She worked in the entertainment industry and smoked several packs a day. I can't tell you how many times I tried to get her to cut down, even a little. I have never smoked and never will. She died way to young and went through hell in the hospital before she left us. I implore anyone in this forum to PLEASE think twice before starting the habit or quit. It's not easy, but we need good people in this day and age.

    Clark Gable had major halitosis - FACT!

    by FeralAngel

    (That means chronic bad breath to you illiterates out there). Yep, it's true, he had dead-mouse-in-mouth oral aroma, and man do I feel sorry for his leading ladies. Imagine the kissing scenes they endured. Like french-kissing a wild boar with tooth decay, I imagine. Maybe that's why people in that pic are shooting Mr. Rhett Butler such sour glances . Look at that guy framed between Gable and Leigh. Is that a "PEEE-YOO!" face or what?

    There's this cool new website called youtube where you can search for and watch old stuff like the yul brynner commercial. Throw that betamax in the trash. Here's the url (type this into your browser bar)

    When do the skilled "writers" of today get to ruin this classic picture? What ever happened to baby jane is in the same rank as this, they are set to ruin that classic why not this one?.. Heres an even better idea when is a major motion picture corporation going to hire an actual writer who knows who to write instead of just rehashing movies i paid to see in theaters already? My stub from the great movies of the 80s such as Footloose should have given me full right to download the pos remake! This movie like casablanca is a timeless classic great pic from the set of very talented actors of thier day, to bad its more then likely some idiot will allow a remake to be done of this and it will suck like every other remake has since roughly planet of the apes.....

  • Sept. 9, 2012, 4:08 a.m. CST

    and that guy doesn't look anything like f murray abraham

    by David Duchovny

    A lot more like vincent price.

    I've seen Vivien Leigh and Jenny Agutter this week...

    by Logan_1973

    Quint is 2 for 2 in movie babes this week!

  • Sept. 9, 2012, 7:04 a.m. CST

    And BTW...I think the pic is staged

    by Logan_1973

    Still cool tho.

  • Sept. 9, 2012, 7:24 a.m. CST

    a visually striking film, but the content makes it unwatchable, IMO

    by Monnie Knapp

    That scene wherein the slaves are happily matching off to fight for the Confederacy. She's like, "Where you going?" And the dude is like, "We's goin' ta war!" All smiley and shit. I found myself wishing every white member of the cast were depicted being drawn and quartered. Also, Butterfly McQueen was awful and annoying. If not for its cinematic perfection, I couldn't have sat through the picture.

  • Sept. 9, 2012, 7:50 a.m. CST

    The Keep (1983)?

    by tangcameo

    And since we want to KEEP it, possible Alberta Watson's one nude scene?

  • Sept. 9, 2012, 8:46 a.m. CST

    That annoyed guys is thinking....

    by DementedCaver

    If he lays it on any thicker I'm just going to puke.

  • Sept. 9, 2012, 9:09 a.m. CST

    I saw that ad

    by Dheep

    I just happened to see that Ad approx 27 years ago. Made quite an impression on me. Was not long after I quit for good. I have thanked him more times that I can say. Don't know if he can hear me, but I have told Yul his DID help at least on person.

    By the standard applied to GWTW...

    by FluffyUnbound's impossible to have any *good guys* in any film set before 1900, with the possible exception of SPARTACUS. The good guys in THE LAST SAMURAI, for example? Fucking monsters. Any film set in the Middle Ages that doesn't focus solely on the experiences of serfs? The protagonist is a fucking monster. Because they are holding a spot in a social pyramid built on cruelty and monstrosity...just like Scarlett.

    They all knew Gable was hanging 14 inches

    by BoRock_A_Boomer

    They called him the "The King"

  • Sept. 9, 2012, 2:44 p.m. CST

    and didn't

    by Have_Penis_Will_Travel

    Fred MacMurray cast shade on all them? Supposedly he did loops back in the day... There's one that definitely didn't pass the *Too Pretty For Porn* test *shudder*

    Gone With The Wind, And...

    by Darkness

    Never to be seen again: That's how i felt once i saw this bloated, so-called epic. Love Clark Gable, but the sullen iconography of this picture makes it too difficult to accept as a supposed "Classic"; The movie is too drawn out and meanders too long on the central relationship of the principal characters...Oh well - I'm just not a big fan of it. And bloody hell!! leave poor Morgan Freeman alone. The dudes, God...apparently.

  • Sept. 9, 2012, 4:12 p.m. CST

    Carol Burnett did it better. Many Times

    by Have_Penis_Will_Travel

    and I'm pretty sure The Simpsons Did It First

  • Sept. 9, 2012, 4:24 p.m. CST


    by Have_Penis_Will_Travel

    I remember that about Yul Sorry about your friend I lost one about 5 years ago Lump, lymph, lungs just about as fast as you can snap your fingers Last week my aunt calls out of the blue My two baby cousins One lost a leg to diabetes And the other one underwent a radical double macotomy in her fight to surive I been praying like crazy

  • Sept. 10, 2012, 7:43 a.m. CST

    Thank God we don't live in a time when Vivian Leigh is a sex symbol

    by Stan Gable

    I'm sure all those guys were popping boners hoping to get a look at her milky white calves or her neck.

    Going, Going, Gone With the Wind

    by ATARI

    I tried real hard to like this movie, but it just didn't do it for me.

  • Sept. 10, 2012, 9:05 a.m. CST

    Some real dumb asses in here...

    by Dan

    Guess what, kids, there was life before you were born and most of it was not pleasant. Slavery existed, but now it's gone, force those balls to drop and come to the big people table and discuss such things with objectivity and intelligence... k? As for GWTW, not one of the favorites, but only because I do not like looooong movies and Scarlett is a real bitch, but then that's the point I suppose. Gable is a cool mofo though... dig his shit real good.

  • Seriously, you sound like a pack of weeping babies when the history of America is discussed or spun into a narrative. Get a grip! the only thing that should offend you is the quality of the movie...

  • Sept. 10, 2012, 7:47 p.m. CST

    I have to thank this movie

    by tangcameo

    Got stuck at a church youth group watching this once. Got so bored that my girlfriend at the time decided to sneak out and make out with me until the movie ended (an hour and a half later). God she was nubile and hot.
