The Margaret Mitchell Story
David C. Hearn | 09/18/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)
"At last A Burning Passion: The Margaret Mitchell Story has finally been relised in the USA. A great movie about the events that sparked the writing of the great American novel Gone With the Wind. The casting is good as well as the scrip that make this a must see. The cover art on this DVD is beautiful. It a shame that amazon does not have it pictured on the site. A bargen at under $10!"
Why Let Facts Get In The Way Of A Good Story?
Susan Vaccaro | The Margaret Mitchell House & Museum, Atlanta, GA | 11/30/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)
"Known for outlandish embellishment in her own storytelling, Margaret Mitchell herself might have giggled her way through this movie's version of her life. This bio of the author of "Gone With The Wind" originally aired on NBC back in 1994, and stars (are you sitting down?) Shannen Doherty in the title role. Ms. Doherty does a surprisingly fair job of capturing Mitchell's rebellious nature. Plus, the actress was born in Memphis and so her Southern accent is tolerable. Ultimately, however, most of the facts presented are outrageously construed to turn Margaret into Scarlett O'Hara and her first husband Red Upshaw into some version of Rhett Butler. The script gets only the names right. This being said, the movie is lots of fun and certainly worth seeing at least once."
