"Frankly, my dear, someone out there gives a damn."

We came across this article written about the preservation work being done at the University of Texas.  The goal is to repair five dresses from the film "Gone with the Wind" by 2014.

An exerpt from the article:
"It's been 75 years since the publication of "Gone With the Wind," and it still captures the public's imagination. The novel and subsequent movie keep generating controversy for their portrayal of slavery and keep generating headlines, thanks to fans who want to read and re-read the book, collect the paraphernalia and dress up like Scarlett O'Hara."

Fascinating article, fantastic work.  Enjoy!
