"Gone With the Wind" screening May 17 part of Lee Library exhibition

The Harold B. Lee Library at Brigham Young University will be screening “Gone with the Wind” in conjunction with the L. Tom Perry Special Collections “Voices of the Civil War” exhibit Friday, May 17, at 6 p.m. in the library auditorium on the first level.   

The screening is open to the public and admission is free. The movie will last four hours and will include a 15-minute intermission.

“Gone with the Wind” is a love story from the American Civil War and the Reconstruction era. BYU Special Collections holds some of the original music scores for the film written by Max Steiner,which are currently on display as part of the “Voices of the Civil War” exhibit in the library. The exhibit also holds original publicity and commercial soundtrack recordings from the film.

It has been nearly 150 years since the Civil War ended, but Americans still recognize those four years as a turning point in the nation’s history. The library’s Civil War exhibit explores a nation torn, a people devastated and a cause worth fighting for.

During the exhibit's run, visitors on the first level can look at letters, photographs and other artifacts from the Civil War, as well as hear speeches and watch videos dedicated to the era.
