I just finished reading Gone With The Wind recently. I could not decide if I like the Scarlett O'Hara character. On one side she is responsible for so much, on the other she is so materialistic. What do you all think of her character?
I just watched "Gone with the Wind" last night lol (My wife wanted to watch it)
Didn't the sister or whoever just pass away a few weeks back? Can't think of her name off the top of my head
But do you think people like her or dislike her ?
Honestly, I haven't read this book and only watched the first 1.5 hours of the movie. I associate Scarlett with Vivian Leigh. It's a very close association which is very disturbing because I can't imagine Scarlett being married to Laurence Olivier. I can, however, imagine Scarlett with mental illness, which Leigh suffered from.
So, from your slightly more than one-quarter viewing of a film, and no reading of the more than 1,000 page book, you have formed an informed opinion of a major character.
Leigh was bi-polar and probably suffered from postpartum depression. To compare the actress with the character is not fair to the actress. IMO
