2011–The 75th Anniversary of GWTW, the book, based in part on writings from the Mitchell family scrapbook, shown above.
Herb Bridges has long been associated with Gone With The Wind. As everyone knows he once had a huge GWTW collection.
But his interest does not stop with that one movie, he has a fascination for all old movies and when he lucked into buying a collection of movie posters his interest only grew. Now, thanks to Georgia PBS we are able to view some of the posters and they are real treasures.
Back when these posters were made they were hand-painted. As he pointed out in the interview there were no “re-runs” so there was no need to mass-produce the posters, so each one has its own individual character.
