Cammie King shares memories of seeing Gone With the Wind for the first time

"I saw Gone With the Wind for the first time when it was re-released in 1947. My girlfriends and I had just read the book. Like millions and millions of girls before and after, we were spellbound.
"We formed a fan club called the FMDIDGADs, which stood for “Frankly, my dear I don’t give a damn.” For parochial school seventh graders, that was very risky. What if Sister Ceciliana heard us?
"We were besotted."
-Cammie King Conlon, “Bonnie Blue Butler,” Gone With the Wind
