Read Turner Classic Movie Host Robert Osborne’s introduction to the book “The Making of Gone With The Wind”

By Alicia Dietrich

A fully illustrated catalog by Ransom Center Curator of Film Steve Wilson has been co-published by the Ransom Center and University of Texas Press to complement the exhibition The Making of Gone With The Wind.


Featuring more than 600 images from the Ransom Center’s archives of David O. Selznick, the film’s producer, and his business partner John Hay “Jock” Whitney, The Making of Gone With The Wind offers fans and film historians alike a must-have behind-the-camera view of the production of this classic film.


Read the foreword of the book by Robert Osborne, film historian and host of Turner Classic Movies (TCM), where he notes that Gone With The Wind was the first film aired when TCM launched in 1994.

Mr Osborne;
I know that I’m being presumptuous, but at 77 I may have earned that right. If you have any input about the programming at TCM, please ask them to air the original Christmas Carol with Alistair Sim. There is no other version that can hold a candle to it.
Thank you
Bruce Vallance

Dear Mr. Osborne,
I am a fanatic of TCM and a great fan of movies of the 30s and 40s in particular. Lately I have been addicted to watching the movies of Edward Arnold, the character actor. He has simply hypnotized me. However, since he made “only” 150 movies , I wonder which you might suggest I not miss seeing.
Your advice is greatly appreciated.
