Exhibiting the “Making of” Gone with the Wind
This chapter looks at what happens when Gone with the Wind and its making are variously consigned to and enshrined in “Making of” museums. It explores the spectrums of adaptation, ambivalence, perpetuation and contestation, and sponsorship and exposure of individual and collective imaginings presented by the three most prolific “Making of” Gone with the Wind museums in the American South. Cronin looks at the various cultural ends to which individual and collective imaginings (along with history, place, and the film and its making) are adapted in these “Making of” sites.
