About this scrapbook page:
The "Burning Atlanta" Scene in "Gone With The Wind":The general belief is that they burned old sets from King Kong,The Last of the Mohicans,and Little Lord Fauntleroy. The Burning of Atlanta was the first scene shot...the Tara set was built on the lot after the ashes were removed."The location for the filming was to be the Pathé lot in Culver City, not far from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.To clear this lot of some old standing sets in order to make way for the construction of the plantation mansions
Design credits:
of Tara and Twelve Oaks and the Atlanta buildings and streets,the art director proposed that the old sets be brought down in a monstrous nighttime conflagration which could be photographed to constitute the big scene of the burning of Atlanta,a climax in the film.This heroic suggestion was enthusiastically embraced.Two stunt men were engaged to ride in an old wagon in front of the burning sets to represent in long shot the flight of Rhett and Scarlett out of the defeated city."
