David O. Selznick’s sweeping Civil War epic Gone With the Wind was a blockbuster before the age of blockbusters. Set in the Old South, the star-studded classic is chock-full of romance, violence and double-crossing. Criticized for romanticizing American history, Gone glosses over glaring issues of racism and sexism; the South is safe and slavery is ignored. With the film’s 75th anniversary approaching, Texas Public Radio hosts a screening featuring an intro and Q&A with scholars from the Harry Ransom Center, where the exhibit "The Making of Gone with the Wind" is on view through January.
