Capitalization of the page name[edit]

Help! I accidentally edited the wrong page when I changed it from a redirect (to the film) to a content page (for the book). I should have instead edited the redirect page that had the correct capitalization. Now the "Move" function won't let me rename this page because of the existing redirect.

I believe the problem is now fixed - although I did something different than you were asking for. I moved the novel to its own page and made the generic title a disambig page, listing both the novel and film. ~ UDScott (talk) 19:07, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
That's a great solution. Thanks! Lee Choquette (talk) 02:36, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

Origin of the metaphor[edit]

The origin of the metaphor "Gone with the wind" seems to be a 1896 poem of Ernest Dowson: Non Sum Qualis Eram Bonae sub Regno Cynarae. --Jjkorff (talk) 08:10, 16 October 2018 (UTC)


Why are "My dear, I don't give a damn" and "After all, tomorrow is another day" absent from the page? Probably the two most famous quotations from the book. 15:02, 20 February 2019 (UTC)
