      To Be A Virginian, either by birth, marriage, adoption, or even on
      one's mother's side, is an introduction to any state in the Union, a
      passport to any foreign country, and a benediction from the Almighty

        Thanks Richard.
        My favorite story is that as Vivian Leigh, obviously no history fan, was greeted at the airport by a band playing "Dixie" she remarked, "hey, they're playing that song from the picture!" Oh well.

        Actually, the GWTW world premiere was at the Lowe's Grand theatre in Atlanta, Ga. The biggest event held in MY town until the 1991 World Series and (oh yeah) the Olympics.

        Cute sidebar. Clark Gable went to the Atlanta Cyclorama (puts the Gettysburg one to shame) and said afterwards, "That's the best picture I've ever seen that I wasn't in." So the artist added a moustache to one of the 3-dimensional characters so that Gable could "star" in the painting.

        Greetings everyone...

        Forgive the formality of the following information, but I cut and
        pasted it from an email.

        On December 2, we will be having a fundraising benefit to help
        restore the spar deck armament of the historic warship USS
        Constellation. The event will be held at the Maryland Theater in
        downtown Hagerstown, MD.

        The show will consist of a concert by the 28th Pennsylvania
        Regimental Band, followed by a showing on the big screen of "Gone
        With the Wind".

        The 28th PA Band is a recreated military band that wears Union army
        uniforms and plays period music on period brass instruments. They
        are featured in the soundtrack of the movie "Gods and Generals".

        Following the band, the David O. Selznick classic starring Clark
        Gable and Vivian Leigh will be shown on the big screen in this
        historic 1915 theater. Where else can you see GWTW in a theater
        where it could have been shown during its premier release in 1939?

        Tickets are $25 (consult your tax advisor regarding how much is tax
        deductible). All proceeds benefit the spar deck restoration on the
        ship (including the purchase and installation of a 30-pounder Naval
        Parrott Rifle!)

        To purchase tickets, visit the theater's website at www.mdtheatre.org
        where they can be purchased online, or by phoning the theater box
        office at 301-790-3500.

        STAGE BOXES: The Maryland Theater has stage boxes like Fords
        Theater. Boxes are reserved for patrons willng to attend in period
        attire to add flavor to the stage environment. Ticket price is the
        same ($25). To purchase box tickets, contact me (Steve Bockmiller)
        at 301-371-6311 or email me at DeBockster@... These tickets are
        first come-first served. There are 10 boxes. 2 are already sold.
        Boxes seat 4 and 6. Individual seats in boxes will be sold. You
        need not purchase the entire box, but period attire is required to
        sit in the boxes.

        CORPORATE SPONSORSHIPS AND PROGRAM ADS: We are currently seeking
        corporate sponsorship in the amount of $4000 to underwrite the
        production cost of this event. We have a whole package of benefits
        and incentives for a sole sponsor willing to step up to the plate,
        including free use of the USS Constellation for a party or corporate
        event (catering extra....rental is waived). However, we will be
        happy to accept smaller corporate sponsorships for portions of this
        $4000 amount. We plan to sell full page advertisements in the
        event program for $250 each. For more information on corporate
        sponsorships and program ads, contact Steve Bockmiller at
        DeBockster@... or 301-371-6311.

        SPREAD THE WORD: Please assist us spreading the word of this event,
        so we can sell all 1300 tickets. If you belong to a group that has a
        newsletter (CWRT, SCV, SUV, historical society, reenactment group,
        etc.), please post this event in the "upcoming events" section of
        your newsletter. Any and all help along these lines would be much
        appreciated.

        Thank you for your time and consideration. Hope all is well with
        everyone.
