About this deal

uk: Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh, Leslie Howard, Olivia De Haviland, Thomas Mitchell, Ann Rutherford, Evelyn Keyes, Butterly McQueen, Hattie McDaniel, Barbara O'Neill, George Reeves, Victor Jory, George Cukor, Sam Wood, Victor Fleming, Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh, Ben Hecht, Jo Swerling, John Van Druten, Margaret Mitchell, Oliver H. Its sights are also aimed at Norma Shearer, John Gilbert, Erich von Stroheim, Lon Chaney, Greta Garbo, Clark Gable, Lionel Barrymore, Maureen O'Sullivan, Jean Harlow, Spencer Tracy, Vivien Leigh, Lana Turner, Hedy Lamarr, Buster Keaton, and Elizabeth Taylor, among quite a number of others. From the aristocratic old world of Tara to the horrors of Atlanta under siege, Gone with the Wind features any number of indelible scenes and images: the genteel girls taking an enforced siesta during the Twelve Oaks barbecue, a horrified Scarlett walking through the wounded, the flight from burning Atlanta, and Scarlett's moving pledge against a burnished sunset set to Max Steiner's glorious music score. Later, as Scarlett defends the skeletal remains of Tara, she's forced to aim a pistol squarely in the face of a scavenging soldier, and the resulting shot is still horrifying and effective today. I was desperate to watch it as I my interest in Old Hollywood films and movie stars had already begun.

Also discussed here are the many different hairstyles that were tested, a prank she played on Clark Gable while Melanie was bedridden, frowning when she discovered the camera could only accommodate one hoop skirt at a time, and how an unsuccessful plea to keep George Cukor in place made way for an inspired piece of direction by Victor Fleming.Otherwise, few stones are left unturned, aiming its spotlight at key members of the small army of technical talent on-staff at MGM, dozens of the studio's most notable films, and both the producers that steered such a mighty ship and the dazzling roster of talent that propelled it along. Scarlett is able to freewheelingly galavant around Tara, the family's sprawling plantation, with a battalion of slaves working the land and catering to her every whim. And thankfully the film has an intermission, an obvious halfway point, so you can stop, stretch your legs, take the dog for a walk, and come back to Tara later on.

It's appreciated that this is such a faithful remix, as is the inclusion of the original mono audio. It is a must-have for fans of Gone With The Wind and Old Hollywood and ideal for those interested in films. It's impossible not to be bowled over by Rhett's quick wit and confident charm, and despite his vocal disinterest in the war, he's easily the most heroic of its male characters. Although Gone with the Wind's primary interest is undoubtably its characters, the film still serves as a visual spectacle. It's for truly exceptional releases such as this that DVD Talk established its Collectors' Series label, and so it follows: DVD Talk Collectors Series.

It too is beautifully designed, featuring a slew of posters from the world over, dozens of production stills and promotional photos, a gallery of behind-the-scenes shots, and even quite a bit of conceptual artwork.Everyday life is just an excuse to don another from a parade of breathtakingly gorgeous dresses and be doted on some more.

The list of smaller but memorable parts seems endless: Thomas Mitchell as Scarlett's Irish immigrant father who instills in her a profound love of the land, Evelyn Keyes as her spoiled, impossibly jealous younger sister, Butterfly McQueen whose squeaked "I don't know nothin' 'bout birthin' babies!
