So I watched Gone With the Wind last night. I hadn't seen it in so long it was effectively a new movie to me. It's a really good movie!
Anyway, whenever I watch a movie, I immediately hit IMDB to look at trivia, goofs, etc. Then I'll often start clicking on the performers in the movies to see what else they were in, etc.
Well, while clicking actors and actresses from Gone With the Wind, I noticed something: They all seemed to die young! It's like, "The Curse of Gone With the Wind" or something. Check this out:
Clark Gable (Rhett Butler) - Died of a heart attack at 59
Meanwhile, Olivia de Havilland (Melanie Hamilton) is still alive and kicking at 90 years old.
