Gone with the Wind is a 1939 American historical romance film, adapted from Margaret Mitchell's 1936 novel of the same name, taking place during the American Civil War and the Reconstruction era. It has won many awards and, adjusted for inflation, the film has earned more than any other film.

The fictional novel was critical of the treatment of the South and depicted the Ku Klux Klan positively, such as when avenging an assault on a White woman. The film's Jewish producer ordered that this should not be included in the film and that Blacks should be depicted positively.[1] Despite this, the film is today often claimed to be racist, such as for including some happy Black slaves.
