Ann Rutherford Remembers Gone With the Wind
Today would have been the 95th birthday for Ann Rutherford. Ann passed away on June 11, 2012 at the age of 94. During her career, Ann completed over 60 films. However, the one for which is most remembered, and the one for which she engaged with the most fans is "Gone With the Wind."
My first memories of Ann came 20 years before I met her. She was highly featured in Daniel Selznick's and L. Jeffery Selznick's 1988 production of The Making of a Legend: Gone With the Wind. I loved watching her relive her memories and relay such a love for the film to an audience 50 years later.
Throughout 1989 and subsequent years, I collected magazine articles, newspaper articles, and other items connected with the enormous 50th anniversary celebrations for Gone With the Wind. Below is an article and interview of Ann Rutherford from the December, 1989 issue of Hollywood Studio Magazine. I hope you enjoy reading this article. Happy 95th birthday in honor of Ann Rutherford!
