Scarlett O'Hara in the 1939 film "Gone with the Wind" said: "As God is my witness, as God is my witness they're not going to lick me. I'm going to live through this and when it's all over, I'll never be hungry again. No, nor any of my folk! If I have to lie, steal, cheat or kill, as God is my witness, I'll never be hungry again."

These famous words were spoken by Vivien Leigh as she played Scarlett O'Hara. It was in the film directed by Victor Fleming and produced by David O. Selznick. The film's screenplay was written by Sidney Howard, adapted from the 1936 novel 'Gone with the Wind' by Margaret Mitchell.

The epic Civil War film drama focuses on the life of petulant southern belle Scarlett O'Hara (Leigh). Starting with her idyllic life on a sprawling plantation, the film traces her survival through the tragic history of the South during the American Civil War and Reconstruction. Her tangled love affairs with Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard) and Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) are highlighted.

Summing things up for Scarlett, she won't let something as small as the burning of the entire city of Atlanta get to her. She returns home, finding her beloved plantation, Tara, in ruins. After doing her best Princess Peach impersonation and pulling up a tiny radish, she swears that her life will never repeat itself. She is making a defiant vow to survive. In her future, she is going to have nothing but a good life!
