MITCHELL, MARGARET.
Typed Letter Signed ("Margaret Mitchell Marsh"), 1 p, 4to, Atlanta, GA, May 12, 1939, to Marcella Rabwin, on personal letterhead, thanking her for sending production stills from Gone With the Wind, with transmittal envelope; page mildly toned, envelope lightly soiled.

Mitchell reveals her excitement as production on the film continues apace: "The stills you mailed me on May 8th have just arrived. Thank you so much for them. Of course I found them very exciting. I did not realize that the picture had progressed up to the point of the jail sequence and the Ku Klux raid. From this distance it would seem that the picture is going into the home stretch and it does not seem possible that your organization can have done so much in so short a time. I think the background of the picture showing Rhett playing poker with the whiskered Federal officers is especially fine. Of course I can't help hoping that he won all their chips in this game!"
