Product Description

Epic romantic drama based on Margaret Mitchell's Pulitzer-winning novel set during the American Civil War. Southern belle Scarlett O'Hara (Vivien Leigh) often uses men to get what she wants, but is unable to get the one man she truly desires, Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard). She soon meets her match in the roguish Captain Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) and in the war itself which destroys the genteel way of life she has always known. With determination she rebuilds her life from the shattered remains the Union Army leaves behind. Despite its sometimes troubled production (director George Cukor was replaced by Victor Fleming, with Sam Wood brought in when Fleming's health failed), the film won ten Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actress.

From Amazon.co.uk

First off, if you're a GwtW fanatic, you must buy this four-disc collection. But then again, you probably don't need to read this to make that decision. For the rest of us, know that the kitchen-sink approach has been established here with two full discs of extras. The film's restoration under Warner's brilliant Ultra-Resolution process is the major contribution to the set. However, the bare-bones version released years ago isn't bad and the film still doesn't pop off the screen as do films from the headier days of Technicolor (like the earlier Ultra-Resolution DVD release of Meet Me in St. Louis). That said, the set is worthy of the most popular movie ever made. Rudy Behlmer's feature-length commentary is dry but an exhaustive reference guide to the entire history of the film. Need more? There's the excellent full-length documentary The Making of a Legend (1989) narrated by Christopher Plummer, plus two hour-long older biographies on the two main stars. There are many new vignettes on the rest of the cast, all narrated by Plummer (a nice touch to tie everything together). The new 30-minute interview/reminisce with Oliva de Havilland will be interesting to older fans, but tiresome for the younger set. The usual sort of trailers and premiere footage is here along with a curious short ("The Old South", directed by Fred Zinnemann) that was produced to help introduce the world to the history of the South. --Doug Thomas --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Golden Age In Blu. 2 Jan 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
As I said in my Blu-ray review of "North By Northwest", when major studios really want to get it together for BD releases, they can make really impressive products. "Gone With The Wind" is a perfect marriage of Hollywood nous, production values and acting bravura: similarly, the Blu-ray release gets the full-on treatment, in terms of restoration of the original print and extras.

"Gone With The Wind" is a fantastic investment on Blu-ray. Technicolor films from the 1930s and 1940s tend to look ravishing, paradoxically because of the lessened colour palette (see also "The Adventures Of Robin Hood" (1938)). Respected production designer William Cameron Menzies was behind the "look" of GWtW, and envisaged rich colour alternating with muted tones for more melancholic scenes: the Blu-ray captures his vision triumphantly, with wonderfully dark blacks, glowing oranges and reds, and sombre greys all equally rendered. Although the transfer is only in 4:3, when you get over the fact there is no pseudo-widescreen option (as there was on the DVD of "Snow White" in that BD combi pack) the quality of the images is in my opinion flawless.

As for extras, the second disc abounds with interesting documentaries and cast biographies that add to the experience of one of the genuinely biggest films ever made.

Although I already had bought the 4-disc-65th anniversary-edition, I decided to buy this new 70th anniversary DVD which contains one more disc. I already was pretty impressed by the edition 5 years ago, which showed the movie in great clarity and all its Technicolor splendor. In addition it had the most amazing bonus features, I had ever seen on a DVD release. It contained feature length profiles on the lead actors Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh, and much to my delight small cast featurettes on all the other actors. It also had a Making-of documentary and vintage newsreels on the original 1939 Atlanta premiere, as well as the the 25th Anniversay re-release in Atlanta. Furthermore, it has foreign language sample scenes, an exclusive 2004 documentary with Olivia de Havilland (who played Melanie in the movie), as well as a documentary on the restoration process and the vintage short "The Old South" (1940) - Needless to say, that those bonus features alone would justify the purchase of this DVD.

Just as I thought that this 2004 DVD couldn't not be topped, the 70th anniversary edition comes along. This new 2009 edition contains one more disc. The first 4 discs are identical to the 2004 release (although the language options are slightly different). The new additional 5th disc contains a feature length documentary titled "1939 - Hollywood's Greatest Year", which is narrated by Kenneth Brannagh and focuses on all the movie classics that were made during that year. Furthermore, you'll find a new documentary on the legacy of "Gone With The Wind" with new contributions by actress Ann Rutherford (who played Scarlett's younger sister). Last but not least, the disc contains a TV movie called "The Scarlett Wars" (1980.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth The Wait! 23 Mar 2005
Format:DVD
Wow! I accidentally came across this new DVD version of Gone With The Wind whilst browsing in the shops. I have previously ignored other DVD versions, because they didn't put any special features on them which disappointed me deeply. I always knew that eventually a DVD with special features would be released, and it has now been released in style with this edition.
I was very excited when I saw it contained 4 different discs. It contains 'The Making Of A Legend' which I saw on TV previously. It is a highly enjoyable account of the story of the making of GWTW, and the most avid fan will enjoy it immensely. It shows behind the scenes shots of all the stars, and some of the auditions starring other populars actors/actresses of the time. It is interesting to see this, and compare their performances to those of the stars of the film.
Being a massive Vivien Leigh fan, I was very pleased to see that one of the discs contains the Vivien Leigh documentary 'Scarlett and Beyond' which is lovely.
There is also a great recent interview with the brilliant Olivia De Havilland. She looks amazing for her age, and her account of the making of the film is spellbinding. She is a very interesting lady.
The overall quality of the film is brilliant. It is almost as if the film was done in recent years. The details and colour is much more superior to any editions before, and you notice things that you didn't notice before. The colour of Vivien Leigh's eyes is more vivid, and you can see that her eyes are actually green, and not the blueish colour that they have on previous versions.
If you love this film then buy it. If you're a mad GWTW fan, then definitely buy it, you would be a fool not to. I promise you, you will not be disappointed!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well I Like It Anyway 28 May 2007
By David R. Bishop VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I was surprised to see so many negative reviews of this film. I've always enjoyed it, but will admit that it sags a bit towards the end.

I view it in the context of when it was made, and how groundbreaking it was in terms of its budget and scope, and the legends surrounding it. It is really a high class soap opera, but that is not meant as a put down.

It was popular here during the blitz, and I can imagine how people then could identify with Scarlett O'Hara when she returned to a ravaged and ruined Tara. Nobody on film has ever waved a radish as meaningfully as Vivien Leigh, as she vowed to overcome and prosper. Three of the four main players are British, which makes me proud.

The film does depict slavery and racism, but please also know that Hattie McDaniel picked up a supporting role Oscar for her portrayal of Mamie. She was the first African American to win an Accadamy Award. In that respect, the film stands as a powerful symbol of black advancement.

An epic of its time, that is still worth watching today.
