Fine condition.In full, ?Thank you for your interest in Rhett and Scarlett. As to the character dolls of ?Scarlett?, which you would like to make, I believe it would be a good idea for you to write the motion picture people about this. I gave them my permission to make dolls and such things tieing up with the film version of ?Gone With the Wind?, and they might consider that the dolls you propose to make would trespass on their rights. If you care to take this up with them, I suggest that you write to their attorney, Mr. Robert E. Samuels, of Cohen, Cole, Weiss & Wharton, 61 Broadway, New York, N.Y.? Handwritten postscript: ?P.S. Last year I had a charming letter from a Jackson girl, Marina Whitfield Alexander. If she is a relative of yours, please give her my regards.?On May 3, 1937, ?Gone With the Wind? won the 1937 Pulitzer Prize for Best Novel. The film version premiered on December 15, 1939, in Atlanta, Georgia. When Margaret Mitchell wrote this letter, battles scenes and retakes were still being shot by producer David O. Selznick. "
