She loves, loves, loves Brashley Wilkes (Tim Conway), until she learns he has just married Melody (Dinah Shore). Then she hates, hates, hates him. Starletʹs tempestuous nature is catnip to Rat Butler (Harvey Korman, in a deft Clark Gable parody). In a delirious compression of Margaret Mitchellʹs sprawling classic, the war is over in a flash, and Rat is coming up the lane to Starletʹs plantation, Terra.

I wish for a time when life was simple and beautiful. I wish I was in the land of cotton. Old times there are not forgotten.” All reminiscing is forgotten when Rat sees Starlet coming down the steps wearing the dress — complete with curtain rods. “That gown is gorgeous,” he gasps. “Thank you,” says Starlet. “I saw it in a window, and I just couldnʹt resist it.”
