‘GONE in the Wind with RHETT BUTLER !!!’

You get to spend a day inside your favorite movie. Tell us which one it is — and what happens to you while you’re there.

Well , when I read the Daily prompt yesterday , I tried to remember all my favorite movies till date and the ones where, I would have myself liked to enact the role of the protagonist…The first movie that came to my mind was the ‘TITANIC’.., for, who wouldn’t want to romance the young , cute Jack (played by Leonardo di Caprio ) and share the passionate love he shares with Rose ( Kate winslet )…But then , I got reminded of its tragic end …and decided to escape the ship wreck….

‘GONE WITH THE WIND’ , by Margaret Mitchell , has been my all time favorite books , which was adapted in 1939 as a movie , a classic at that……I have always believed that no movie can do justice to the original book , and hence have avoided watching the movie altogether…

But if I were to ever imagine myself as any character in a movie or a book , I think it would be ‘Scarlet Ó Hara’ , the female lead in the story…Scarlett , the daughter of a wealthy plantation owner , a girl who was strikingly beautiful and knew it too , one who would go to any lengths to save her own self ( selfish to the core ! ), and use her charms to win her way through all troubles including poverty ,during the American civil war…

Now , you might wonder why ,I would like to get into the movie , to portray such a self centred ,yet beautiful girl , and I have my answer ready – for the love of ‘Rhett butler‘ – the male protagonist of the story ,the tall, dark handsome man , who loves Scarlet with such severe passion (  yet not let her know about it ! ),and knows how to tame the shrew !

Yes , I would love to be in the ‘Gone with the wind‘ – book/movie , so that I would be loved thus , and pampered the way Rhett pampers Scarlet , yet lets her believe otherwise…The only man , who knew how to handle her difficult nature…But unfortunately Scarlett doesn’t realize her own love for him , till it is too late……….

Towards the climax of the story , after a series of unfortunate incidents , a depressed  Rhett leaves her and goes to Atlanta , while Scarlet  lives  on , in the hope of meeting him again…someday…sometime… But , if I were to be to play the character of Scarlett , I wouldn’t ever let Rhett move out of my life , and would consider myself lucky to have him……………….And hopefully ,we would have lived ‘happily ever after‘  😉 ,  like in the end of every fairy tale love 🙂

But to tell you the truth I think I am already living my fairy tale love story…and have a ‘Rhett butler’ in my life………so who cares about the movie 😀

    • Thank you such an wonderful insight into Margaret mitchell’s life…It was so nice to learn so much about a woman whose books got such rave reviews and continues to inspire so many generations… Her tragic end was indeed a loss to the world of literature , which would have probably earned a few more classics otherwise !
