Gone With The Wind Original Vintage Movie Poster

Dear Friends & Movie Lovers:

Hello from Hollywood. We've got some extraordinary new poster acquisitions this month, including this beautiful French poster (with artwork by Roger Soubie) for the Oscar-winning epic GONE WITH THE WIND. And of course this year's Academy Awards ceremony is just a a few weeks away. Take a look at our collection of past Best Picture winners, right here

It's also Black History Month, and it's nice to see BLACKKKLANSMAN & BLACK PANTHER both nominated for Best Picture. GWTW's depiction of African Americans has always been controversial, yet it did produce the first black Oscar-nominee, and Hattie McDaniel's win for Best Supporting Actress was a breakthrough. Dorothy Dandridge's Best Actress nod for CARMEN JONES in 1954 was another sign of progress, but it wasn't until Sidney Poitier's dramatic ascent in the 1960s that a black actor won the Academy's biggest prize and topped the box office polls.

Finally, before we get to the new posters, I wanted to take a moment to celebrate the life and career of Michel Legrand, the legendary French composer who wrote unforgettable film music: the hauntingly romantic SUMMER OF '42 & UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG (this Czech poster for that film is a favorite new acquisition), the elegant, stylish THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR, and the Oscar-winning score for YENTL, with so many beautifully expressive melodies and that soaring finale.

A long life and his music will live forever. R.I.P.
