Before there were Pampers I guess there were these:
Has anyone ever seen this movie?
I found this ad and article while exploring the bound yearly volumes of my granddad's paper. You'll notice the article was from 1941 and the movie came out the same year according to this Turner Classic Movie review.
BTW, has everyone read or at least seen Gone With The Wind? What was your favorite movie scene? I think mine is when Bonnie Blue dies and Melanie comes over to plead with Rhett to not grieve himself to death. Clark Gable with tears in his eyes...gets to me every time! I read the book as a young adult (and that was a long time ago) so I have forgotten many of the particulars but I remember that I thought Margaret Mitchell"s development of the characters was exceptional.
Just a random interjection here: There is a restaurant in downtown Atlanta called Aunt Pittypat's Porch. Remember Scarlett lives in Atlanta with Aunt Pittypat after her 1st husband Charles Hamilton dies. If you're interested and are in Atlanta you can tour Margaret Mitchell's home and the GWTW museum.
Here are some favorite quotes:
(Gerald O'Hara): Do you mean to tell me, Katie Scarlett O'Hara, that Tara, that land doesn't mean anything to you? Why, land is the only thing in the world worth workin' for, worth fightin' for, worth dyin' for, because it's the only thing that lasts.
(Mammy): Oh no you ain't! If you don't care what folks says about this family, I does. And I done told you and told you, you can always tell a lady by the way she eats in front of people like a bird. And I ain't aimin' to have you go over to Mista John Wilkes' house and eat like a field hand and gobble like a hog.
(Rhett Butler): With enough courage, you can do without a reputation.
Rhett): Did you ever think of marrying just for fun?
(Scarlett): Marriage, fun? Fiddle-dee-dee! Fun for men you mean.
(Rhett): No, I don't think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That's what's wrong with you! You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.
(Scarlett): Rhett... If you go ... where shall I go? What shall I do?
(Rhett): Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.
(Scarlett): I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that tommorrow.
(Scarlett): After all ... tomorrow is another day.
