It stood out to be as the best and the most popular film in the year, 1939. The huge cast of the film was highly embraced by the audience. The people enjoyed each and everything related to the film, also including the depiction of African Americans in it. It became as one of the highest rating film in the history of America.
‘Scarlett O'Hara’ was the character which remained highly focused in the eyes of the audience. This role was immensely played by the well-known beautiful actress, ‘Vivien Leigh’. Scarlett is the strong leading character in the film. The whole story of the film revolved around the incredible life of Scarlett. On the basis of the character, Vivien Leigh stood out to be best suitable woman for the film. She tremendously put the best of herself to portray the character of ‘Scarlett O'Hara’, and to make this film as successful as the novel. Her performance in the film is so extraordinary that it brings me no surprise that she has won the ‘Best Actress Award’ for this film. Vivian was successful to become the lifetime heroine of Margaret Mitchells. I have read this novel more than five times, and while reading the novel I used to wonder who can perfectly portray the Scarlett O’Hara? Because the character of Scarlett is put as too strong, wild, bold, brave, confident, stubborn, somewhere proud, egoistic, shameless, intense in love matter, courageous, devoted, confusing, revenge taking, selfish, dignified, and determined towards goals. Vivian’s performance in the film has covered every inch details according to the demand of the role. The way she raised and out herself against every shot of the film, is truly applauding. I watched the film two times just to watch the legendary performance of Vivian Leigh. I really admired and adored the way she delivered her dialogues, either it was the expression of happiness, sadness, grief, aggressive, lust, bold, romantic, weeping, enthusiastic or fighting. Every dialogue threw by Vivian Leigh perfectly matched the genre and demand of the scene.
