Dying to know how many cameras were used to film the scene of Atlanta burning? (7) Can’t remember what was monogrammed on Rhett Butler’s hankies? (R.K.B.) This exhaustive, illustrated companion answers these and nearly 2,000 other trivia questions, many of which test knowledge too arcane for all but the most loyal fans of Margaret Mitchell’s saga of the South.

Spignesi also includes reviews as well as excerpts from the original film program, entertaining only for their evocation of a Hollywood where blazing Technicolor and a $4 million budget were the heights of moviemaking decadence.
