They run the gamut from flight of fantasy to more docu-drama
And remember just having historically accurate clothing or set decoration doesn't make the characters' actions/ beliefs true to their era.
It’s a perspective of the civil war era from a woman growing up in the early 20th century, one of the most racist times. I love the writing and storytelling, but I also get disturbed by Mitchell’s defense of the KKK and slavery. She was a product of her time for sure.

First of all, it's a fictional movie based on a fictional book.

But politically it is very meaningful as it represents the South's attempted "Lost Cause" scenario.

Historical accuracy and racist controversies aside, the 1915 silent classic "Birth of A Nation" is often on the list of the greatest silent movies.

There was pandemonium....greatest thing to have happened in Atlanta since the burning itself

Those old theaters like the FOX were beautiful, a time when people dressed up to go to the movies.
