Post Gone With The Wind
just a tiny piece of trivia but i watched it the other day (my favourite film i have to say!) and noticed when rhett names their baby bonnie blue, there is a painting of MA (the one where she's holding a rose) behind him! i've watched this so many times but didn't notice before! on the other side of scarlett's bed, there's another portrait of an 18th century style lady too.

i wonder what scarlett thought of her!?(!) :lol:

Yes severina I noticed that too the last couple of times I watched it! :lol: So funny that Scarlet lacks the obvious grace exuded by Marie Antoinette's portrait right above her bed! (I hope you aren't a tremendous fan of Scarlet O'Hara :oops: !)

the painting must have been included on the movie's set for a reason. I wonder if the director didn't mean to establish a comparison between Marie and Scarlett (??)
Not that there is any possible comparison, but we all know that Hollywood and History are not good bedfellows

What do you mean? I thought it was good that they established an historical basis by using a well known portrait of MA and re-styling it with Dunst's face on it. I did not, however, lik the painting of MA with her children-it felt to cold and morbid, and the Queen's face looked scary. The original is so light and cheery and happy, even with he empty ctradle. :cry:

it IS a gorgeous picture of dunst but its another example of hollywood suiting themselves and THEIR story. i'm more for historical accuracy than what looks nice! :wink:

Well, yes but if they hd just used the original portrait than most movie-goers would have been like "well that's a nice picture, but who's it of?"
