Saturday at the Movies

We're going back in time for this one!




We all know Vivien Leigh played Scarlett O'Hara (whom Margaret Mitchell originally named "Pansy O'Hara"!) in Gone With the Wind. She was one of 1400 actresses interviewed for the part, and one of 400 who actually read for the part.

There were other, more famous actresses who were considered. Can you name 2 of them?


List on Tuesday!

Hmmm... good one.

I'm going to say Ginger Rogers and Katherine Hepburn, because right now I can't think of any other big names from back then!

Maybe it'll come to me in a dream. :) I may be back in the morning...

Oh darn it - I think Bette Davis really wanted the part . . . just don't know if she was seriously considered. Hmmmmm.

Love this movie...I've watched it more times than I can count...I think Barbara Stanwick was one and I think I heard Lucy was considered too.
