There was never a more revered story of the
twentith century than than Gone With the Wind.
Vivien Vance and Clark Gable were extraordinary.
After miles and miles of Gable's devoted core to take
care of Vivien Vance which for the 1930 was par for the
course women being taking care of by men not by
themselves. But Miss Lee had a mind of her own and
did exactly as she pleased and by the time Vivin decided
she did love Gable it was too late. Thus the famous
line “Frankly, Scarlet I don't give a dame.
Frankly, Scarlet I don't really give a dame was said by
the frustrated Clark Gable after being fed up with his
true love playing games with him. By the time she realized
her love for him it was too late. Born a wealthy, beautiful
lady this was a histoical saga of women coming into their
own rights, even if it did mean the cost of her lover. Gables
traditionally reversed his role as husband and care giver,
eventually dissolving societie's expectation of her life as
mother and wife giver. She want to spent her life of the
strong minded, valiant lady she was. Scarlet lived life
not for others but for herself.
