Gone with the Wind is a 1939 American adaptation of Margaret Mitchell's best-selling novel of the same name, directed by Victor Fleming starring Vivian Leigh, Clark Gable, Leslie Howard and Olivia de Havilland. It was nominated for thirteen Academy Awards, winning eight, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress for Vivian Leigh, and Best Supporting Actress for Hattie McDaniel, who was the first African-American to win an Academy Award. Adjusted for inflation, and helped along by several re-releases, it is the most successful motion picture of all time.

The following weapons were used in the film Gone with the Wind:

Remington Model 1858 Army

After escaping Atlanta, Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) leaves Scarlett (Vivian Leigh) on her own so he can go fight in the war. Before leaving, he gives Scarlett a Remington 1858 Revolver, which she later uses to shoot a Union soldier in the face.

Unknown Revolver

Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard) comes down the stairs before leaving to fight, a revolver that is hard to identify is seen holstered on his hip, more than likely it is a Colt Navy, seeing as it was the most common revolver purchased by Confederate Troops.
