The little eleven-year old in me is in awe at this video. What a find. From the Huffington Post:

Are you a Windie? Do you know what a Windie is? On “Antiques Roadshow” (Mon., 8 p.m. ET on PBS), a woman brought in an item that she was told would make them “plotz.”

Windies, according to the appraiser, are fanatical enthusiasts of “Gone With the Wind,” and there’s no doubt that this woman’s treasure would pique their interest. It was a copy of the book signed not only by author Margaret Mitchell, but also by virtually the entire cast of the classic movie as well.

Vivien Leigh, Clark Gable, Victor Fleming, Hattie McDaniel and more! Not just Windies, but anyone who appreciates classic literature and classic cinema could easily see how special and significant a find this is. The estimated value for the book was set in the range of $7-9,000.



One thought on “VIDEO: 'Gone With The Wind' Book on Antiques Roadshow”

  1. With your interest in “Gone With The Wind” and Margaret Mitchell, I know you will enjoy reading my client Peter Bonner's book "Lost In Yesterday".

    It tells the stories of the real history in Atlanta and Jonesboro and the real people author Margaret Mitchell were inspired by for her book "Gone With The Wind". Peter is the world expert on this and dug up all of this new information over several years.

    What's particularly interesting are the many seemingly coincidental connections between people, Atlanta/Georgia/Jonesboro history and "Gone With The Wind", both the book and the movie.
