The year is 1936. The first edition of a new novel called Gone with the Wind was released just as African-American runner Jesse Owens dominated at the Berlin Olympics bemusing his host Adolf Hitler. Also, a baby by the name of Dennis Hopper was born, destined to go on to greatness as the true star of Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, by far the best in the series.
