What's not to like about this classic? Most if not all drama/period love story owes a debt to this incredible effort. Back in those days, color films were rare and so this was a great feat that was surmounted. The acting is superb (for the time, of course), the set design is impeccable (even to this day), the photography is breathtaking (most of the time) and there is a true sincerity that seems attached with the project and the overall feeling. Gone With The Wind. There really isn't much to say that hasn't already been said over the years, save for one's own appreciation. And my appreciation is this: it was time for me to plunge into this classic and I didn't regret the time (and money) invested into it.
Adapted from Margaret Mitchell's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, this dazzling epic stars Vivien Leigh as the tempestuous Scarlett O'Hara and Clark Gable as the dashing Rhett Butler. Forever linked by passion and separated by pride and self-delusion, these unforgettable screen lovers bring Mitchell's immortal saga vividly to life, set against the stunning backdrop of a time and place forever "Gone With the Wind".

Original mono track, TrueHD mix, you have a good choice to pick from and all sound wonderful. The HD mix does sound a bit more recent and the mono track delivers perfectly with a sweet touch of oldie (like watching TV at your grandmother's place).
This catalog title has been taken VERY seriously. The restauration here is quite an improvement over any previous efforts to date. It's rich, complex, detailed and leaves VERY few to desire. It is one marvellous transfer that remains, in my mind, as one of the better transfers Blu-ray has to offer.

I can't really comment on the film itself. It's a classic and has some famous scenes and lines that we all know. To be honest, I find the film boring until Clark Gable appears, he steals every scene he's in. It definitely gets better as it goes on, but it's a long film and takes a while to get interesting... until then it feels like watching an old musical or play, everything feels too fake, too staged, even the acting. Gable makes it more real somehow.
The picture quality on the BluRay is very good and clean, but the colors seems highly exaggerated and overly bright. Not having previous versions to compare, I can't say whether it's correct or not.
Other then that it is worth the money for what collectibles you receive
- hard cover book with pictures of cast members with their names beside
- a book with indepth bio on cast and directors
- inter-office communication with regards to the movie from 1939
- cd soundtrack sampler
- the art of Gone with the wind
- plus 3 dvds 1 is the movie the 2nd is celebrating 70 years of the movie the 3rd is MGM when the lion roars 6hrs of studio chronicle.
Unfortunately, that's not the only revelation when opening this package. The Amazon catalogue description lists a whole range of enticing bonus features which are not actually part of this package. This steelbook edition is the feature film, and a companion lecture by Rudy Behlmer about the film and the people who made it. It's a lecture filled with interesting information, but perhaps half of his commentary is biographical information about David O. Selznick and Vivian Leigh and Victory Jory and Leslie Howard and other members of the creative team that made this artistic achievement.
This edition is for those who would be quite content to watch the film on Netflix or iTunes, if only they offered a true high definition picture. If that would satisfy you, then this edition will satisfy you. But if, like me, you look forward to things like "8 hours of revealing extras about this timeless classic including more than 3 hours new to the collection," this edition will be a little shallow. The Scarlett edition is probably the one you want to hold out for.
I did purchase this from Amazon, but with a little regret returned it when I found the advertised bonus features were not included. Great film, but a sadly lacking Blu-ray package.

The 2nd disc has tons of parts where the sound cuts out and you can't hear anything. Also part of the picture keeps cutting it out and flashes white.Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
