2014 has already seen the death of several notable people, including Shirley Temple, and actress Alicia Rhett, who had been one of the oldest surviving cast members of the classic film “Gone With The Wind”. I have said many times how much I enjoy watching this iconic movie over and over, as well as reading and rereading the book.
Miss Rhett played the role of India Wilkes, sister of plantation owner Ashley Wilkes, who was the foil of Scarlett O’Hara, played by Vivian Leigh.
Miss Rhett did not pursue Hollywood and went back to South
Carolina to live. In Charleston she led a quiet life. She never
married. She was 98 years old when she died.
