    Monumental "Tara" front entrance from Gone With the Wind. (MGM, 1939) The grand entrance is the focal point of Tara - Scarlett O'Hara's legendary home. Measuring 152 in. tall x 148 in. wide, including the door with flanking sidelight panels, support columns and signature fanlight and cornice mounted atop.  Former First Lady of Georgia, Betty Talmadge, had the entrance restored in 1989 for an event at the Atlanta History Center commemorating the 50thanniversary of the film's release and it became the centerpiece of the exhibit.  In September 1990, Mrs. Talmadge had it re-erected at her Lovejoy Plantation for a private event for Ted Turner and Jane Fonda.  In 1998 the doorway was relocated and placed on exhibit at the Margaret Mitchell House Museum where it currently resides. The window glass and the rim-lock were missing and replaced during restoration.  Without question, one of the finest relics of Hollywood history. Special shipping arrangements from Atlanta, Georgia will apply.
