Gone With The Wind (the original)

Seventy five years ago, this beloved jewel of Georgia, Gone With the Wind, premiered at the Loew’s Grand Theatre in Atlanta Georgia. In attendance were the Stars and Starlets of this Hollywood Film. Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh, and Hattie McDaniel. As seen in the clips below, Hollywood’s all stars were giving a warm southern welcome.

Watch this original news footage.

Gone With The Wind is a classic, Pulitzer Prize winning novel written in 1936 by Georgia native Margaret Mitchell. The novel sold one million copies in its first six months and has been translated into over 40 languages.

Mitchell, a first time novelist, sold the screen production rights before the book was published for a whopping $50,000. The film went on to yield 13 Oscar nominations, 10 wins, presenting the first African American to win an Academy Award. Not to mention the now decades of re-screens and memorabilia.

Rental Containers for Recyclables

Let’s Talk About How Rental Containers Can Help You With Your Recycling

For starters they are a great way to deal with that stockpile of plastic bottles & cereal boxes you’ve been hoarding in the garage. I know I have one too. One easy call & one neatly contained pile of recyclables later & you can park your car in the garage again. Here is a ripple effect from that brilliant move.

You will also be on the good list with your significant other.

Who has probably been dropping hints for a few months (years??) now. About doing something about the recyclables. Bonus. Happy wife happy life, right?

The next thing they can be used for is group parties & picnics. Of course you can put your trash in them. We all know that, but if you’re environmentally saavy, which most of us are becoming these days, you can also deposit recyclables in one & trash in the other. Ripple effect number two. And this is golden.

When the get together is over there is no clean up to do!

Because nobody likes to do party clean up. Nobody.

Eco-Friendly Disposal Done For You.

The guys at R&R Containers deposit the recyclables where they need to go, & dispose of the rest of the debris in a way that is good to our environment.

Tree & Leaf & Organic Waste Disposal is Easy Peasy Too.

When you’re all done with that fun fall clean up, you can toss the bags into one of these guys & call it a day. The container company just comes & picks it when you’re ready. Like that. Problem solved. CSI here I come.
