The Culver Studios is most commonly known as the place where Gone With The Wind was filmed. The mansion building was featured in the credits as the backdrop for the logo of the David O. Selznick Studios. Gone With The Wind was shot on Stages 11 & 12 in 1939. In those days the studio back lot stretched south of the existing studio all the way to the hills. All the exteriors of Tara, Twelve Oaks and the city of Atlanta were created on the studio's 28-acre backlot (which was referred to as the "back 40").
