Gone with the Wind

Offensive Classic Movies

Loews Cineplex Entertainment

Forget Avengers: Endgame. Gone with the Wind is the most popular movie of all time. When adjusted for inflation, this 1939 film is the most successful movie in box office history, and it’s been in the top ten of AFI’s list of the top 100 American films every year since their rankings began. Star Hattie McDaniel even became the first African American to win an Oscar.

Ironically, the film’s black stereotypes were already being lambasted in the ’30s for perpetuating racist Civil War-era myths, so you can only imagine how offensive they are now. There’s also Gone with the Wind‘s pesky marital rape scene that implies women secretly enjoy being assaulted.
