Hello Kinkade Collectors,
There has been a buzz surrounding the release of Gone With the Wind for about a year now. We've heard hints and suggestions and now we are proud to present this tribute to the classic 1939 film.
"Gone with the Wind is a 1939 American historical epic film adapted from Margaret Mitchell's Pulitzer-winning 1936 novel of the same name. Set in the 19th century American South, the film stars Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh, Leslie Howard, Olivia de Havilland, and Hattie McDaniel, among others, and tells a story of the American Civil War and Reconstruction era from a Southern point of view.
The film received 10 Academy Awards (8 competitive, 2 honorary), a record that stood for 20 years. In the American Film Institute's inaugural Top 100 Best American Films of All Time list of 1998, it was ranked fourth, and in 1989 was selected to be preserved by the National Film Registry. The film was the longest American sound film made up to that time - 3 hours 44 minutes, plus a 15 minute intermission, and was among the first of the major films shot in color (Technicolor), winning the first Academy Award for Best Cinematography in the category for color films. It became the highest-grossing film of all-time shortly after its release, holding the position until 1966; after adjusting for inflation, it has still earned more than any other film in theater rentals." -Wikipedia (See the entire entry here)
It's easy to see why such an epic film drew Thom's interest and we're sure happy he recognized it's contribution to the history of writing and film production in America.
Thom has included many elements from the film in the image along with a few other hidden images. See if you can find any of them below.
