(1939, Victor Fleming) In the 1930s, Hattie McDaniel created several memorable characterizations that transcended her stereotypical maid roles. McDaniel brought her own distinct power to the role of Mammy in GWTW, a performance so remarkable that she accomplished the impossible, becoming the first Black actor to win an Academy Award. With Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh, Leslie Howard, Olivia de Havilland and, as the unforgettable Prissy, Butterfly McQueen. DCP. Approx. 238 min.
