Real to Reel: The Making of Gone with the Wind

Aug 31, 2012 - Jan 13, 2013

Winner of 10 Academy Awards, Gone with the Wind remains popular decades after its 1939 premiere. Hollywood’s highly romanticized movie of the “Old South” is based on Margaret Mitchell’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel.

The true story of how Mitchell’s book became a record-breaking film is revealed in Real to Reel: The Making of Gone with the Wind, an exhibit opening Friday, Aug. 31, at the N.C. Museum of History in Raleigh. Showcasing authentic memorabilia — costumes, screen tests, scene props, a script, Vivien Leigh’s Academy Award and more — the exhibit will run through Jan. 13, 2013. Admission and weekend parking are free.

The Museum of History is the only venue in the Southeast to feature Real to Reel. Take advantage of this rare opportunity to see more than 120 items from the James Tumblin collection.
