    "Gone WIth The Wind" Part One Script, with Annotations. From the "FADE IN long shot of "Fort Sumter - with Confederate flag being raised" to Scarlett O' Hara's "...As God is my witness, I'll never be hungry again!" and "The Camera Finally Pulls Back to an Extreme Long Shot - A puff of early morning wind stirs the trees and bushes - like a harbinger of a new day, FADE OUT... " Such is the text of this original annotated Production Continuity Copy script for Part One of Gone With the Wind. The script is marked "1st part," dated February 27, 1939 , with script changes dated March through June. Additionally there are penciled-in changes, testimony to the obsessive drive of its perfectionist producer David O. Selznick. Various codes are penciled in the script, directions for the reading of lines (e.g., "coquettishly" for Scarlett's line to Rhett, "What do you want?"), indications of miniatures and work by Jack Cosgrove (who created special photographic effects) - all in all, enough amazing detail to make you feel you're immersed in the actual legendary production that won eight Oscars.The script is housed in a beautiful 9.5" x 12" book, with a gold leather spine, engraved Gone With the Wind Screenplay Production Continuity Copy 1939. A second book, 11" x 13 in size and engraved on the spine, Gone With the Wind Production Memos 1939, includes four interoffice memos between Cukor and Kern regarding the production (in Very Fine condition) and a vintage program book for the movie (Fine with moderate to heavy soiling and wear to the cover). The script pages are a bit aged, but the overall condition certainly rates a Very Fine. A spectacular GWTW artifact -- Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh and David Selznick seem to haunt its pages.
