Today in History: June 27, 1939
On this day in 1939, one of the most famous scenes in movie history is filmed…
Scarlett O’Hara: Rhett. . .Rhett. . .Rhett, if you go, where shall I go? What shall I do? Rhett Butler: Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.
There is probably no movie line reaching iconic status any more than the famous scene of Rhett Butler walking away from Scarlet in Gone With the Wind. And to think it was almost NOT in the movie, at least the use of the curse word. Remember, the year is 1939 with censorship at the beginning of the 20th century being much more stringent than that of today.
Do you think it would have had as much impact or be remembered and revered had the curse word been removed?
