2009 GWTW Hallmark ornament

2009 GWTW Hallmark ornament

The lovely people at Hallmark sent me the details about the 2009 Gone with the Wind Hallmark Keepsake ornament that will hit stores on July11. The ornament, called ‘Franky, My Dear,’ features Rhett Butler and Scarlett O’Hara in their famous, final moments together. Scarlett, dressed in her black mourning dress, and Rhett, holding his bag, stand by their front door as Rhett prepares to walk-out on her. A special feature about this 70th anniversary ornament is that you can listen to Rhett and Scarlett recreate this moment. The ornament features dialogue from the film (but it isn’t Vivien Leigh & Clark Gable speaking). Battery operated and 4 3/4″ tall, this ornament is priced at $24 US dollars. It is designed by sculptor Julie Forsyth, who designed last year’s Gone with Wind ornaments. Ms. Forsyth says this about Gone with the Wind: “I finally got the (Margaret Mitchell) book, and I was fascinated. So I watched the movie again. I was in love with the whole story all over again. Scarlett O’Hara comes off as this spoiled Southern belle and everyone treats her like that, but she’s got incredible strength. I think that’s a really motivating thing to have presented to you. She’s a fighter, and we admire that.”

Personally, I collect these Hallmark ornaments every year, and I have a special Gone with the Wind Christmas tree on display in my home during the holidays. I can’t wait to add this ornament to my collection because I love the colors of the stained class, and I am excited to have a sound ornament so I can relive the climactic ending of the story whenever I want.
