Clark was supposed to cry in the scene after the death of his daughter. It worried him for days before he was to do the scene as he’d never cried on the screen before. He didn’t think it was masculine for a man to cry. One day he confided in me, “Olivia, I can’t do it. I’m just going to have to quit.” I talked with him and convinced him that the tears denoted strength of character, not weakness. It turned out to be one of the most memorable scenes in the movie. Clark always underrated himself as an actor. I think his Rhett Butler will live forever as one of the screen’s classic performances ~ Olivia De Havilland
