There was no love lost between India Wilkes and Scarlett.

From what I've read of Alicia Rhett, she was a very gracious woman and an active patron of the arts/humanities while living a quietly productive life outside of Hollywood's limelight.

I was surprised when I saw her image that I recalled her part immediately. I think that GWTW has that effect on people who watched because if was such an awesome production.
