This Day in Georgia History

December 15, 1939

Premiere of “Gone With the Wind”

The world premier of “Gone With the Wind” was held in Atlanta at the Loew’s Grand Theater. By 6 p.m., crowds had gathered to watch Clark Gable, Vivian Leigh, and the film’s other stars arrive. The greatest applause of the evening, however, was reserved for the novel’s author, Margaret Mitchell.
