The “Making of” Gone with the Wind: Popular Studies and Documentaries
- 53 Downloads
This chapter explores the response to enthralment by Gone with the Wind in popular “Making of” studies and documentaries, and considers the modes and properties by which readers’ enthraldom is negotiated and facilitated. Cronin highlights the extension of the occlusions, elisions and restrictions regarding slavery by which the film adaptation secured investment in the first place, and the apologist tactics and contestations that form part of a wider and familiar “Making of” scheme of extension through contestation. The chapter looks at the related trajectory towards adaptation within these “Making of” texts, and at the contributions these texts make to understanding of the “Making of” genre and its relationship with adaptation as substitutive practice.
