Gone With The Empathy: Why is Scarlett Smiling?

"Gone With The Wind" co-starring Noelle Boc and Clark Gable.

SUBMITTED BY: Noelle Boc  LOCATION: Universal Studios, California (1985)

It’s tough to line up your face in one of those hole-in-the-head photoboards. You have to make sure there’s not too much hair dangling through the hole, especially in cases when the color doesn’t match. You have to tilt your head at the perfect angle and stick out of the board enough to be visible and minimize shadows.  Lastly, eye contact with the other character is critical.

With all these things to consider in a 5-second photo-op, we forgive Noelle/Scarlett for reflexively smiling while Atlanta burns to the ground.

P.S. This snapshot is 29 years old. Does anyone know if Universal Studios still has this “Gone With The Wind” photoboard?

(Noelle Boc is active in the tattooed librarian movement and likes to kiss fish.)
