ATLANTA (CBS46) -

An actress playing the role of the late author Margaret Mitchell is the highlight of a movie tour being offered in Atlanta based on the most successful film in box-office history.

Gone with the Wind is a 1939 historical romance film adapted from Mitchell's Pulitzer-winning 1936 novel.

Atlanta Movie Tours is offering the three-hour tour aboard a luxury coach. Sally Smith, playing the role of "Miss Mitchell," is the tour guide, sharing stories about her life and showing visitors the apartment where she wrote the novel about pre- and post-civil war life in the south. Guests also get to view Mitchell's grave site and the location where she was struck down by a drunk driver at the age of 48.

The Gone with the Wind movie tour was featured Tuesday on Better Mornings Atlanta.
