RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The North Carolina Museum of History is getting ready to show off a private collection of memorabilia from the movie "Gone with the Wind."

The items on display in the exhibit "Real to Reel: The Making of 'Gone with the Wind'" include the Academy Award that Vivien Leigh won for her portrayal of Scarlett O'Hara and her dress from the scene of the attack at Shantytown.

The collection of more than 120 items belongs to James Tumblin, who has homes in Portland, Ore., and Kaneohe, Hawaii. He's the former head of the Universal Studios makeup and hair department. His collection is considered the largest private one of "Gone with the Wind" memorabilia.

The exhibit opens Friday and runs through Jan. 13.
