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.

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."

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.
