I loved the book. I liked the movie, but not as much as the book, but that's usually the case with me. It about time for a reread, I think.
My personal story involves my SIL, who adored Clark Gable (and Donald Duck for whatever that's worth). Anyway, she had pictures of him all over her house. An acquaintance, who had no idea who Clark Gable was, once asked if he was a relative . . .
The part I enjoy about the book and movie is the conflict/bond between Scarlett and Melanie.
I don't think they could ever do a remake that would come near to the original.
