Amazing to see how the film was made. Sad to hear how she died, a bright creative author who made and continues to enrich American literature.

The tour of the apartment where she lived while writing the book, emphasizes on discussions about the history of those times and the times Scarlett O'Hara lived. I loved the discussions and the guide!
