Scarlett Goes to Bonaventure

Today marks the introduction of another character to my Gene Marshall blog: Scarlett O’Hara from "Gone with the Wind," as portrayed by Vivien Leigh. This is the Tonner version of the scene where Scarlett & Ashley Wilkes are caught in an innocent embrace by two of the local magpies. Called “Don’t Look Back,” it is definitely one of my favorite costumes from the film.

I have decided to place Scarlett in Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah, Georgia. I have melded two of my photographs to make a portrait of one of my favorite movie characters. Hope you enjoy.

  1. Incredible photography! She looks beautiful, thanks for sharing!

  2. Thanks Nikkie. I photoshopped the eyes a bit to make them a little less "Stepford" looking!

  3. Dave, know what. I had to succumb to getting "Don't Look Back". I like this picture of Scarlett. I know you put the two photos together but she seems to have been shot in that scene. The lighting is accurate and the doll is really a stunner, isn't she?

  4. GWTW: I hope you like her when you get her or else I'll feel responsible! She really is a very good likeness of Vivien. My only gripes would be the jewelry; not sure why Tonner missed the boat on that one. Red jewels with a blue outfit? But that's a small gripe. - Dave
