157 – Gone With the Wind (1939)

Jesus this is a long one.Over 3 and a quarters long.

Jesus this is a long one.Over 3 and a half hours long.

Slavery.Civil war and loads of other shit.Like all the other films from the 30’s this one doesn’t paint women in a good light.There’s a bit at the beginning where a whole fucking classical song plays.A full 8 minutes before a word is said.I thought the film was playing backwards.All them credits.Too much.Scarletts mother is a cold hearted bitch.About 12 minutes in the taxi driver driving her home gets some bad news.In the same breath Scarletts mother tells him his wife died just giving birth to his kid.Buddy didn’t even know she was pregnant.Mad innit?This auld woman goes to a charity event and they decide to auction off woman for guns for the war and she says “this is disgusting it’s like a slave auction”.From the woman who has 4 slaves at home.Retarded.The implication of a slave auction seems worse that actually owning slaves.Clark Gable is a useless actor,fucking innuendo everywhere.He even says i bought you so i own you to a chick.Don’t even get me started about Prissy the simple slave girl.Scarlett asks her to call the doctor becuase the other woman is having a baby.Prissy turns around and says she’s delivered babys dozens of times.Two minutes later Scarlett asks for help with the baby,Prissy turns around and says “what baby?” and that she’s never delivered one ever.Mental.
