  • He should have been Ashley

    Every so often when watching TCM I spot an actor I've never noticed before. This week, I developed a bit of a crush on George Murphy, but I fell head over heels for Jeffrey Lynn this afternoon. In reading his biography, I learn that he was supposed to be Ashley Wilkes in Gone With the Wind. I have to admit, though I've always wanted to read it, I've never taken the time--Civil War buff that I am. I've always thought I'd save it for that dream beach vaction I'm still waiting on. I have to say as fine an actor as the dashing and heroic Leslie Howard was, it never quite fit that Scarlett wouldn't fall for Rhett immediately. I assumed it was a psychological fixation...a deep love she couldn't let go of despite her obvious attraction to Rhett. To find that Ashley was actually written like Lynn makes much more sense. And though I never thought I would hear myself say that I would have loved to see someone else in the roll-- it almost seems sacrilege to say it-- but I think I would have preferred it. What an interesting dynamic that would have been--to see Clark Gable's Rhett Butler and Jeffrey Lynn as Ashley Wilkes. I think I would have finally understood Ashley better. There was always something missing there--beyond just the physical differences, Howard was nothing to sneeze at, but he was almost too dreamy for Scarlett. I think Lynn would have played the roll closer to the type of man who would compete for Scarlett's affection. Ahh, this makes me want to run out and buy a copy of Gone With the Wind. I am on vacation...but still waiting on that beach....

    Jeffrey is my favorite actor and also such a charmer in his movies. I could watch his movies over and over again. He was a joy to watch!
