Belle Watling of "Gone With the Wind" was a real woman, born illegitimate, raised in poverty in a violent home, and cast off at 15 after her mother's funeral, with a baby in her arms and her door padlocked by the landlord. From this desperate childhood, Brezing became rich and famous, operating what Time magazine called the "most orderly of disorderly houses."
