For the record

  • Who: Gone with the Wind (US 1939)

  • What: Highest box office film gross - inflation adjusted

  • Where: United States

Rising cinema ticket prices mean the all-time top-grossing movies are nearly all recent films. Although Gone with the Wind (USA 1939) took just US$393.4 million (then £88 million) at the international box office, in an inflation-adjusted list it comes top with a total gross of US$5,362,000,000 (£2,916,000,000).

In the US alone, Gone with the Wind had 283,100,000 admissions compared with 130,900,000 for Titanic (USA 1997).
