St. Paul, Minn. — Margaret Mitchell's epic novel had taken America by storm. By 1938 it was a runaway best-seller, and by 1939 it premiered in Atlanta as a big-budget epic movie that went on to become as popular as the novel.

Gone with the Wind, the movie, took its toll on directors and producers, nerves were frayed and careers called into question, but there was only one composer, Max Steiner, whose music takes us from Scarlett and The Tarleton Twins flirting on the porch of Tara, through the burning of Atlanta and Rhett's final departure. GWTW and Max Steiner on Flicks in Five.
