Gone with the Wind Spread

On This Day

To cast the coveted role of Scarlett O’Hara, 1,400 interviews and 90 screen tests were performed before Vivian Leigh was finally selected.

Gone with the Wind premiered today in 1939 at the Loew’s Grand Theater in Atlanta, Georgia. In a three-day period of celebration, the mayor declared it a holiday and gave city workers half the day off.

Summation of Spread

Gone with the Wind is an American classic about a manipulative woman and a roguish man’s turbulent love affair in the American South during the Civil War. The Gone with the Wind Spread’s questions are inspired by its characters and themes.

Land is an essential theme in Gone with the Wind. Scarlett closes the film, after losing everything she holds dear, realizing that “land’s the only thing that matters.” Land connects with the suit of Pentacles. Pentacles are what is tangible and enduring.
