    Tomorrow is another day


    Review: A+

    Hopefully, opening day turnout for the Making of Gone With The Wind,
    isn’t an indication of how the attendance at the exhibit is going to go.
    After all, it was started during the week when most fans would be working.
    There is plenty of material at the Harry Ransom Center UT at Austin with or
    without a heavy attendance. The highlight of the exhibit, are five dresses including the curtain dress, the ball gown, the wedding dress (replica), the blue peignoir (replica) and the green wrapper. The curtain dress faded due to time and lighting conditions.

    Also featured, is the 1st addition of Margaret Mitchell’s book, GWTW. Which she autographed.
    The Harry Ransom center, located at 300 W 21st St. Austin, TX 78712, is holding this exhibit from September 9, 2014 to January 4, 2015. Hours are 10am – 5pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. 10am – 7:00pm Thursday and noon – 5:00pm Saturday and Sunday.
