The Making of a Film Legend

Beyond the Pages & Behind the Scenes

Just a few steps away from Margaret Mitchell's apartment, learn about Atlanta illustrator and historian Wilbur G. Kurtz's role in authentically adapting the Gone With the Wind novel for the silver screen.

The exhibition features facsimiles of storyboards and other movie materials, photo opportunities with life-size reproductions of Walter Plunkett’s costume sketches for Scarlett, Rhett, Ashley and Melanie, and a video documentary. Highlights of The Making of a Film Legend include the original portrait of Scarlett from the film and the original Tara doorway from the movie set. A dedicated casting call area provides guests with the opportunity to read from copies of the movie script and act out scenes from the legendary film.
