Scarlett O'hara: I despise everything about this character. I wanted to pull out a gun and shoot this wench when she slapped Butterfly McQueen. The only thing that could have saved this film in my opinion is if Rhett hadn't given enough of a damn to stop from knocking her lights slap out permanently. Fiddley dee and frankly, my dear, you're dead now.
SCARLETT: "Melly! They're drunk!" MELANIE: "Leave this to me, Scarlett. And please, say nothing."... ASHLEY: "Hello, Melly." MELANIE: "So you've got my husband intoxicated again, Capt. Butler! Well, bring him in." YANKEE CAPT TOM: "I'm sorry, Mrs. Wilkes. Your husband's under arrest." MELANIE: "If you arrest all the men who get intoxicated, you must have a good many Yankees in jail. Bring him in, Capt. Butler. If you can walk yourself."
Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O'Hara Hamilton and Olivia de Havilland as Melanie in 'Gone With The Wind' In this scene Melanie is in labor. Olivia de Havilland always meticulously researched her roles. As she had not yet had a baby in real life, she visited a maternity hospital to study how various women coped with the stresses of childbirth for the scene where Melanie has her baby. Off-camera, the scene's director, George Cukor, would occasionally pinch her toes to make her feel pain.
GERALD O'HARA: "Scarlett, if you're not here by the time I count ten, we'll be going without you!" SCARLETT: "I'm coming, Pa!" GERALD: "One... two, three... four, five, six..." Scarlett: "Oh, dear! My stays are so tight I know I'll never get through the day without belching."
Scarlett and Mammy leave the jail after she fails to get the $ 300 from Rhett to pay the taxes on Tara. They see Belle Watling as she goes into the Yankee jail to visit Rhett Butler. "Who that? I ain't never seen hair that color in my life. Does you know a dyed-hair woman? I wish I did know that one. She'd get my money for me."
