Everett Brown appeared in approximately 40 Hollywood films which included "Boys Town" and "Congo Maise".
2. Victor Jory

Answer: Jonas Wilkerson

Weasel-like was an apt term to describe Tara's Yankee overseer Jonas Wilkerson (Victor Jory). He was fired from his job, as strait-laced Ellen O'Hara (Barbara O'Neil), suspected he fathered Emmy Slattery's (Isabel Jewell) illegitimate child. He later tried unsuccessfully to buy Tara for taxes owed. Jory made over 150 films and appeared on television numerous times. He portrayed Injun Joe in "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer". Jory played Helen Keller's father in "The Miracle Worker" starring Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke.
3. Rand Brooks

Answer: Charles Hamilton

Scarlett O'Hara (Vivien Leigh) married Charles Hamilton (Rand Brooks), her first husband, not for love but to spite Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard). Charles was an idealist who truly believed in the southern cause but died of pneumonia (after a bout with measles) and never fought in any battles. Brooks had a regular role in the "Hopalong Cassidy" western series movies as Lucky Jenkins. On television he played Cpl. Randy Boone in "The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin".

His acting resume includes numerous films and television appearances.

He appeared in over 160 films. Besides "GWTW", he appeared in two other films that won the Academy Award Oscar for Best Picture. They were "Life of Emile Zola" and "You Can't Take It With You".
5. Ward Bond

Answer: Yankee Captain "Tom"

After the attack on Scarlett O'Hara in Shantytown, true southern gentlemen went out in the night to defend her honor. That evening a handsome Yankee captain appeared at Melanie Hamilton Wilkes doorstep. He was there to arrest Ashely Wilkes (Leslie Howard) and the others. That captain was played by Ward Bond.

He was persuaded by Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) that Ashley was drunk, not wounded in the skirmish. Ward Bond appeared in over a hundred films and of those he appeared in twenty-three with John Wayne.

He was no stranger to television either. He made numerous guest appearances but is much remembered for his role as Major Seth Adams on "Wagon Train". Bond appeared in 133 "Wagon Train" episodes between 1957 and 1961.
6. J.M. Kerrigan

Answer: Johnny Gallagher

Always eager to make more money, businesswoman Scarlett O'Hara (Vivien Leigh) hires unscrupulous Johnny Gallagher (J.M. Kerrigan) as her lumber mill foreman in Atlanta. Gallagher hires convicts to do the labor and treats them atrociously. To this, Scarlett turns a blind eye.
Joseph Micahel Kerrigan was born in Dublin, Ireland and began his acting career there. He came to America and settled into acting in Hollywood. He had many minors roles in films but is best remembered for his role as Leach in "The General Died at Dawn" with William Frawley, Gary Cooper and Madeleine Carroll.
7. Oscar Polk

Answer: Pork

Pork (Oscar Polk), a nervous Tara house slave, was Gerald O'Hara's manservant and the first slave he owned. Pork, along with Prissy (Butterfly McQueen) and Mammy (Hattie McDaniel), remained with the O'Hara family after emancipation. Oscar Polk was an accomplished Broadway actor who appeared in many plays including "The Green Pastures" and "Dark Eyes".
8. Howard Hickman

Answer: John Wilkes

Howard Hickman had a brief role in "Gone With The Wind" as Ashley Wilkes' (Leslie Howard) father John, the owner of Twelve Oaks plantation. Hickman was not only an actor but a director and writer, as well. His career included over 270 films (as an actor) and 19 films (as a director).
9. Clark Gable

Answer: Rhett Butler

As Margaret Mitchell was busy penning "Gone With the Wind", Clark Gable was busy working in the oilfields of Oklahoma. This dispels the idea, as some readers believed, that she had Gable in mind as Rhett from the beginning. Not true. Gable was an unknown at the time. Mitchell wrote the book out of boredom and never intended to have it published.

When asked who she thought should portray Rhett Butler, she replied, "Groucho Marx". Gable gave a grand performance as the suave, handsome Rhett Butler. Clark Gable was considered the "King" of Hollywood.

His filmology included greats such as "Mutiny on the Bounty", "The Misfits" and "It Happened One Night" (for which he won the Oscar for Best Actor at the Academy Awards). He appeared in over sixty movies throughout his career.
10. Eddie Anderson

Answer: Uncle Peter

Aunt Pittypat Hamilton's (Laura Hope Crews) slave Uncle Peter was portrayed by Eddie Anderson. Uncle Peter was totally devoted to his mistress and took care of the household, as Aunt Pitty was childish and inept. Anderson started his career in vaudeville then progressed to radio, where he became a mainstay on the "Jack Benny Program", as Rochester. Benny and Anderson then took their talents to television with much success. Mr. Anderson appeared in numerous movies both pre and post "GWTW".
11. George Reeves

Answer: Stuart Tarleton

In IMBd, George Reeves is credited as Brent Tartleton, however this was a mistake. That part was played by Fred Crane, When the mistake was discovered and brought to the attention of producer David O. Selznick, he decided it would be too costly to make the credit change to correct the mistake. So, it remained incorrect.

The Tarleton twins, both admirers of Scarlett (Vivien Leigh), were both anxious to be off to war to uphold the honor of the South. Both were totally naive to the savagery, waste and hardship of war.

The twins both died at the bloody Battle of Gettysburg. George Reeves appeared in over 40 movies but his real claim-to-fame came from his television role as Superman in "Adventures of Superman" from 1951-1958. As Superman, Reeves fought for truth, justice and the American way.
12. Leslie Howard

Answer: Ashley Wilkes

Leslie Howard, an English actor, producer and director, played the role of Ashley Wilkes. Howard loathed the character he portrayed for he saw Ashely as listlessly weak and nostalgic. Mr. Howard had an enviable career on the stage and on the silver screen. Three of his greatest movies include "Of Human Bondage", "The Scarlett Pimpernel" and "The Petried Forest". He was active in theater as an actor, director and producer.
13. Carroll Nye

Answer: Frank Kennedy

Poor, hapless Frank Kennedy (Carroll Nye) loved Suellen O'Hara (Evelyn Keyes) but was tricked by big sister Scarlett (Vivien Leigh) into marriage to her instead. He became husband number two for Scarlett. After the Civil War was over, Frank opened a store in Atlanta and was putting money aside for his future with Suellen. Scarlett needed money to pay the taxes on Tara, so Frank was the answer to her problems. He died defending her honor.
Nye appeared in 58 films between 1925 and 1944.
14. Paul Hurst

Answer: Yankee deserter (shot by Scarlett)

The unnamed Yankee deserter that was looting the house at Tara was played by Paul Hurst. It was a very quick appearance because upon discovering him trespassing Scarlett O'Hara (Vivien Leigh) shot him point-blank thus killing him immediately. Hurst had a lengthy career in film, which included "The Ox Bow Incident", "Angel and the Badman" (with John Wayne) and "Prince of the Plains".

He also tried his hand at directing films.
15. Thomas Mitchell

Answer: Gerald O'Hara

Critics and moviegoers alike, both agreed that Thomas Mitchell was the perfect actor to play the role of Gerald O'Hara, owner of the grand plantation Tara. His fierce love of the land was due to his Irish roots. Mitchell himself was of Irish decent and some say that he had the look of a leprechaun. After the death of his beloved wife Ellen (Barbara O'Neil) and the ravages of war Gerald went half-mad. Thomas Mitchell appeared in such great movies as "It's a Wonderful Life", "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" and "Stagecoach".

As "Gone with the Wind" swept the 1940 Academy Awards Oscars, Mitchell won Best Supporting Actor that year for his role in "Stagecoach". He is one few entertainers and the first man to win the "triple crown" of acting awards, which includes an Oscar, an Emmy and a Tony.
