About this deal

SD): This featurette explores the 2004 Ultra Resolution remastering rather than the 8K work done for this Blu-ray release, but some of the same concepts certainly still apply. It's worth noting that this same disc has been included with The Wizard of Oz' collectors' set, though, and that could dull the enthusiasm of viewers interested in seeking out both.

Mayer is by far the driving focus of this segment, from his emphasis on wholesome family entertainment to very different reflections on the man by the stars he'd helped foster to an obsession with race horses that essentially left MGM without a steward.The most intriguing of these is a five page letter from 1937 in which Selznick debates at length the pros and cons of hiring George Cukor as well as a slew of other potential directors for Gone with the Wind, complete with their salaries and availability. Scarlett is a woman who can deal with a nation at war, Atlanta burning, the Union Army carrying off everything from her beloved Tara, the carpetbaggers who arrive after the war. Extras: DVD 9, Language(s): English, Castilian Spanish, German, Czech, Hard of Hearing Subtitles: English, German, Subtitles: English, German, Castilian Spanish, Czech, Danish, Finnish, Hebrew, Norwegian, Potuguese, Swedish, Interactive Menu, Screen ratio 1:1. SD): Quite a few of the remaining extras focus on the cast, beginning with this 1975 retrospective hosted and narrated by Peter Lawford.

SD): This collectors' edition of Gone with the Wind doesn't ignore the sprawling supporting cast either, offering mini-featurettes on Thomas Mitchell, Barbara O'Neill, Evelyn Keyes, Ann Rutherford, Hattie McDaniel, Oscar Polk, Butterfly McQueen, Leslie Howard, Rand Brooks, Caroll Nye, Laura Hope Crews, Eddie Anderson, Harry Davenport, Jane Darwell, Ona Munson, and Cammie King. Selznick was notorious in the industry for his onslaughts of memos, and it's even mentioned in Rudy Behlmer's audio commentary that much of what's known about the film's production is owed to those reams upon reams of notes. With determination she attempts to rebuild her life from shattered remains following the Confederacy's defeat. Some nineteen hours of audio commentary, featurettes, documentaries, shorts, trailers, and even a TV movie are spread across this four disc set.

The romance between Rhett and Scarlett doesn't overwhelm the bulk of the film, and part of the intrigue is that it doesn't settle into convention. What sets Rhett apart from the more respectable Southern gentlemen pictured here is that they march in lockstep with what's expected of them. Her eyes are aimed squarely at Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard), if only because his attention has been directed elsewhere.

Her brashness and sass are endearing, of course, but Mammy is more of a maternal figure to Scarlett than her own mother. inarguably a point where Scarlett makes an epiphany that profoundly changes her outlook -- when she realizes what she had and what the cost of her petulance has proven to be -- but by then, does it matter?I have enjoyed this film for the pure story of its but it did spur me on to read American history of that time. One of the most beloved and beautiful features of this collectors edition of is the 19-page booklet that is actually a replica of the souvenir movie program sold in theatres showing Gone with the Wind! Turning off the personalized advertising setting won’t stop you from seeing Etsy ads, but it may make the ads you see less relevant or more repetitive.
