Gone With the Wind
It's 1862, one year since the start of the U.S. Civil War. After the death of her husband Charles from illness during the war, Scarlett goes to Atlanta, a hive of activity that is serving as a munitions base for the army of the South, to live with her sister-in-law Melanie and others. Scarlet has long been in love with Ashley, Melanie's husband. She had left her hometown in the hope of being reunited with Ashley, who had gone off to war, but now she has run into another man. This one is rumored to be a rogue who is making excessive profits by running the North's blockades, transporting military stores to the South. He is Rhett Butler, who had earlier spotted Scarlett secretly confess her love to Ashley at a party held at the Wilkes residence, also known as the "Oak Estate."
An auction is announced at a fund-raising bazaar held at an army hospital. The man with the winning bid gets the chance to dance with a lady. Rhett appears, and he offers the exorbitant sum of 150 dollars in gold coins. He indicates Scarlett as his partner. Scarlett doesn't hesitate to accept the offer, having spent her days in official mourning over the loss of her husband, even while she had been yearning for the good life. Dressed in her mourning attire, she takes his hand and starts to dance.
Rhett has been drawn to Scarlett from the moment they first met. As a reward for choosing her as a dance partner, he asks her to say that she loves him. But then the instant she hears that Ashley is returning home after being given furlough, Scarlett rushes off excitedly. Rhett is enchanted by Scarlett like no other woman before. She has the ability to see things as they really are and lives her life in a way that is true to her feelings. Rhett is determined to wait for the day until Ashley is completely out of her life, no matter how long that takes. The day arrives when Ashley's furlough ends and he returns to the battlefield. Predicting defeat for the army of the South, he relies on Scarlett to help his infrm wife, saying that he wants her to be assistance should anything happen to his wife. When the two part ways, Scarlett is unable to contain her emotions and again confesses her feelings to Ashley. Her words, however, fail to penetrate his heart.
Scarlett is employed at a hospital as a nurse for wounded soldiers as the war eventually worsens for the South. Unable to endure the harsh conditions day after day, she flees and returns home. Rhett shows up there, almost as if he had been able to see right through Scarlett's feelings, and attempts to gain some affection by giving her a present. Rhett manages to win her heart by giving her a beautiful hat, telling her that he never gives anything without expecting something in return. Once again he asks her to say if she loves him. Rhett's frequent use of crude and frank words, however, makes her angry.
The army of the North at last breaks through to Atlanta. As a fierce bombardment ensues, Scarlett works on the details of a plan to accompany the pregnant Melanie on her escape, so that Scarlett can fulfill her promise made to Ashley. But without even a horse and cart, the thought crosses her mind that the only person who can save her from this dilemma is Rhett. At the same time, Rhett is concerned about Scarlett and is making his way to her.
The streets of Atlanta go up in flames. Together with Scarlett, Rhett picks up the reins of their wagon and is set to break through the enemy's lines, aiming for her homestead of Tara.
