Maybe the best film I have ever seen.
on 2 October 2011
I have never seen Gone With the Wind so when the 70th Anniversary Blu-ray edition came up on a special offer I thought it was about time I tried it. I suppose that in summary it could well be the best film I have ever seen. This version has been totally remastered to 1080p with 5.1 soundtrack. For a 72yr old film the colours are superb, the soundtrack is crisp and clean, the cinematography and lighting is the best I have seen. The cast are all heavyweights with Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh leading a cast that cannot be faulted. The acting is old school and brings the film to life. And Vivien Leigh, wow.... how gorgeous, until now I had always thought Monroe or Hepburn was the most beautiful actress ever but now Leigh takes that place. The only drawback is the sore bum you get as the film is 4 hours long. It is the only disc I have ever come across with an actual intermission.
