1 Title:   Gone with the Wind literary estate papers  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   Hargrett Library  
  Dates:   1910-1988  
The collection consists of the literary estate papers from two filing cabinets of the offices of the Gone with the Wind Literary Rights, arranged and labeled as they were. One cabinet contained papers dealing with the foreign translations of the book, a Japanese musical production of Gone with the wind, plagiarism accusations from Susan Lawrence Davis, David Selznick musical rights, local museums and Margaret Mitchell namesakes, and fan mail. The 2nd cabinet dealt mainly with a Stephens Mitchell lawsuit against Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer over sequel rights and includes court documents and correspondence. There are also papers relating to his lawsuit against Showcase Atlanta for a stage production titled "Scarlett Fever." Also included are printed material, phonograph records, videotapes, and cassette tapes. Of special interest are letters from Gone With the Wind movie actors, post-World War II letters from translators of Gone With the Wind in France and Czechoslovakia, a journal of Wilbur Kurtz written while he was advisor for the filming of the movie, and gossipy letters to Margaret Mitchell from his wife Annie Laurie Kurtz as she watched the filming.
