In perhaps the most fabulously fruitful of all years to date for the silver screen, 1939, GONE WITH THE WIND was nominated for an incredible thirteen Academy Awards and took home eight statuettes including Best Picture.

GONE WITH THE WIND's two lead stars, Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O'Hara and Clark Gable as Rhett Butler, both received nominations for their performances.  But while Leigh took home the Best Actress statuette, Gable lost to Robert Donat's performance in GOODBYE, MR. CHIPS at the 1939 Academy Awards.
