The 13 worst movie break-ups just in time for Valentine's Day
'Gone With the Wind' (1939)
Who's breaking up: Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara
Why are they breaking up: Because they are terrible, terrible people.
Why it's memorable: The sweeping scope of an antebellum American south, the clothes, the Technicolor! Depending on your stage of life and level of cynicism, Rhett and Scarlett either have the most turbulent, most romantic love in all the world or they are two shallow, vain, narcissistic fools using and abusing each other and their friends and family to get the upper hand in a marriage doomed to failure because compromise isn't in either of their vocabularies and how the actual hell did you ever find this romantic when you were seventeen?
