Frankly, my dear, I don’t understand why this stamp was so damned hard to find …

It finally turned up on American eBay for a reasonable price. Issued on the 25th of February 2003, it’s a 37 Cent US Postage stamp featuring a segment of the script from Gone with the Wind, and is one of an “American Filmmaking: Behind the Scenes” series …

It qualifies as a typewriter-themed stamp in the same way that this Polish stamp does …

It’s a screenwriting stamp that failed to get a mention in The Margaret Mitchell Encyclopedia (by Anita Price Davis, McFarland 29 March 2013) …

The Margaret Mitchell stamp of 1986 (above) marked the 50th anniversary of the publication of her novel Gone With The Wind.

The Gone With The Wind (Movie) stamp (above) issued on March 23, 1990, in Hollywood, California.

Atlanta writer Margaret Mitchell (1900–1949) wrote Gone with the Wind (1936), one of the best-selling novels of all time. The Pulitzer Prize–winning novel was the basis of the 1939 film, the first movie to win more than five Academy Awards.

Margaret Mitchell did not publish another novel after Gone with the Wind. Supporting the troops during World War II, assisting African-American students financially, serving in the American Red Cross, selling stamps and bonds, and helping others—usually anonymously—consumed her.

The Margaret Mitchell Encyclopedia documents Mitchell’s work, her life, her impact on Atlanta, the city’s memorials to her, her residences, details of her death, information about her family, the establishment of the Margaret Mitchell House against great odds, and her relationships with the Daughters of the Confederacy and the Junior League.
