Storyline

Atlanta, 1873. It's another day (Melanie's funeral, in fact), and Scarlett is determined to win back Rhett (who's spending a lot of time with Belle Watling). First, she goes to Tara and spats with Sue Ellen over Tara. Then she goes to Charleston, presenting herself to Rhett's mother and friends, to Rhett's dismay. But when she's caught in a compromising position with Ashely, she retires to her mother's people in Savannah, and her overbearing grandfather Robelard, while Rhett courts a new bride. Scarlett also seeks out her O'Hara relatives and meets her cousin Colum, a priest (and gunrunner). And knowing them, she goes to Ireland. There she meets the handsome Earl of Fenton, who owns Ballyhara, the ancestral home of the O'Haras. And when Scarlett buys it from him, she becomes the financial and spiritual head of the family. But her newfound happiness is short-lived as disasters strike, and she must rely on Rhett's love for her to save her from the gallows. Written by Kathy Li

Trivia

On a Siskel & Ebert episode each picked their choses on who to play Scarlett and Rhett. Siskel picked Demi Moore & Alec Baldwin, while Ebert picked Meryl Strep & Timothy Dalton. Siskel claimed Dalton would not be imposing enough for the role and had a whiny quality that would not fit Rhett. See more »

DON'T COMPARE THIS TO THE ORIGINAL

I notice all of the comments are trying to make a (unsuccessful) comparison to GWTW. This I believe is the reason for so many negative comments. They are trying to picture Gable, Howard, Leigh, etc. in the major roles and - it just will not work. Anthony Dalton and Joanne Whatley were not the first choice for the starring roles. The producers wanted Jane Alexander (Dr. Quinn) and Lee Horsley for the leads. Maybe it would have been a different film, had those two been cast.

Having not read the book, I can only view the film on its own merits - which was excellent IMHO. Olivia DeHavilland (Melanie) and Ann Rutherford (Sue-Ellen) were interviewed when the mini-series came out and they both thought that it could have happened just the way it did in the film.
