Road Trip Anyone?

As you may know by now, I'm a big Gone With the Wind geek.  The University of Texas at Austin is celebrating the film's 75th anniversary with an exclusive behind the scenes exhibition that looks amazing. For me, this event is not to be missed, so I'm passing on the juicy details for anyone else out there who loves this iconic movie as much as I do.  

Incidentally, the film contains a scene in which Scarlett, poverty stricken after the war and struggling to keep her beloved Tara intact, pitches in with the soapmaking for the plantation.  Her vow to "never be hungry again" is taking a toll, but Scarlett is just getting warmed up for the colossal schemes she's plotting to unleash on Atlanta.  Proof positive that "stirring the soap" really does give a girl a chance to dream.... :)
