1936 book itself page 310 :
....You should be kissed and by someone who knows how."
no comma. the " is from the text. The elipsis is not.

i’m trying to track down the form of the line from the BOOK _Gone With the Wind_ that appears in the movie as

You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how

the exact form, including commas and where “and” occurs.

if you have a serious quotations dictionary that has it (i’ve looked at five that don’t), please e-mail me.
