Exhibit examines making of 'Gone With the Wind'

Film buffs can get a glimpse of Scarlett O'Hara's iconic green curtain dress and other items related to the making "Gone With the Wind" at an exhibit set to open in Austin, Texas, next week.

The University of Texas' Harry Ransom Center will display the items as part of its 75th anniversary tribute, "The Making of Gone With the Wind." It opens Tuesday and runs through Jan. 4.

Visitors will be taken on a journey from the 1936 purchase of the film rights to Margaret Mitchell's best-selling novel through production and to the movie's eventual premiere.

It closely examines the casting of British actress Vivian Leigh in the much-sought-after lead role of Southern belle Scarlett O'Hara and producer David O. Selznick's decisions when adapting the story to the silver screen.
