Le film plus les heures de bonus...n'hésitez pas...le making of du film, avec les reprises des essais pour le rôle de Scarlett, nous rendent notre Scarlett O'Hara (pardon Vivien Leigh) encore plus chère.

I'd just like to mention to '1000_pages' that he/she have definately been misinformed of the history of the North and South America disputes.

First of all, the North are NOT noble, nor the South!

The North couldn't care about slavery! They couldn't care about the blacks because they treated them abominably in the North also.

I think you need to review your own readings of their history before making judgmental opinions on the internet without knowing the full story.

I am in no way trying to defend either party involved in the Civil War of America but I do believe in creating a fair picture, especially in history. You can't just group the North as the "goodies" and the South as the "baddies". That really is rather ignorant to be honest.

It seems as if you really don't know the truth and have been given a very misinformed outline of the situation.

I have seen the film and think it is excellent and well acted despite being a little long-winded.

Good for a night in but start early!

An orchestra rendering of Dixie accompanies the picturesque sunset spectacle of contented slaves bringing in the cattle at "quitting time". Over this gentle scene, the poignant words shown below slowly roll:-

There was a land of cavaliers and cotton fields called the Old South...
Here in this pretty world gallantry took its last bow...
Here was the last ever to be seen of Knights and their Ladies fair, of master and of slave...
Look for it only in books, for it is no more than a dream remembered.
A Civilization gone with the wind...

This is the unforgetable opening scene of David O. Selznick's 1939 film rendering of Margaret Mitchell's great romance. To me at least; this is the greatest historical/romantic drama of all time. The story centres on Scarlett O'Hara(Vivien Leigh) as she grows from spoiled plantation owner's daughter into a very resourceful woman amidst the tumultous years of the American Civil War, and those immediately following. Clark Gable gives the preformance of his life as Rhett Butler, the strong, even ruthless entrepreneur who loves her, while Lesley Howard and Olivia de Havilland both give depictions of the Old South's 'Aristocracy' at it's best.

The Blue Ray format enhances Selznick's clever use of light effects to emphasise the many dramatic scenes in this film, and the final result has to be seen to be believed. Two examples are:- Rhett and Scarlett escaping as the city of Atlanta burns; and Scarlett parsnip in hand, vowing to the rising sun that she will never be hungry again.

Today many of the attitudes depicted in this film seem old fashioned, quaint, even offensive to some; but the depiction of the Old South, with all it's strength's and weaknesses is a fair one, made at a time when some still living could remember the reality; while the deeper reasons behind the momentous events depicted are illustrated throughout in the words of the actors. I have no hesitation in recommending this film, in this format; they were, like Rhett and Scarlett, "made for one another".Gone With The Wind [Blu-ray] [1939]
