Leslie Howard was so magnificent as Ashley. I can't stand to read criticisms. His red-gold hair gives him the most dignified, beautiful and ethereal aura.
I often wonder how Ava Gardner would have fared in the role of Scarlett - she was 17 herself in 1939 - too young?
Oooh, the historical inaccuracies just make me nuts. As if Mammy would have shouted out the window in front of company about Scarlett not inviting the Tarleton boys to stay for dinner!
Frankly, OP, I don't give a damn.
I love it when Mammy says "I'm gonna put these bitches in boiling pot!", referring to the lice ridden clothes of the returning boys.

If You Puts a Knife Under the Bed, It Cuts the Pain in Two!
Prissy was obviously not quite "all there."
"No use to try to sweettalk me, Miss Scarlett. I'se known you since I put the first pair of diapers on you. I said I'm gawn to Atlanta with you and gawn I is."
R8 has an skill at stating the obvious that is without parallel.
I used to think she was merely annoying but now I realize that there was more going on than that. Shame on Scarlett etc. for counting on her to "bring the baby."
Foreshadowing Blanche Dubois.
"Oh she wept with delight when he gave her a smile, and trembled with fear at his frown."
love this scene
It just ain't fittin!!!
Was the idea that you would put the knife sticking upwards so that the woman would feel something through the mattress and it would take her focus off feeling her pain? Or was this purely a voodoo thing where the knife being placed under the bed was thought to possess magic powers?
R16, it's a play on words and an old wives' tale which Prissy took literally.
