Description

The Technicolor hues are sumptuous -- bright and optimistic whenever Scarlett has the opportunity to fully embrace the Southern belle lifestyle and dusty and smoldering in the heat of war. There is also a short documentary Restoring A Legend which is about the technical and digital process of restoring GWTW for this edition without changing or removing anything from the original version. Behlmar is even able to point out which sequences were reshot as the film changed hands from director to director and as dailies failed to match Selznick's vision, and deleted scenes are another favorite topic. The Lion Reigns Supreme" takes a look at the new slate of actors and actresses to sign with the studio at the peak of its success during WWII as well as how its star was beginning to lose its luster. I found it very entertaining and you can forget your problems for a few hours, focusing on the various personalities in the film.

The only vintage promotional materials are trailers and newsreels, really; no still galleries or radio spots have been included. Nonetheless, this 1939 box-office smash remains one of Hollywood's finest achievements, an irresistible spectacle chock-full of the finest stars in the filmic firmament striking sparks off one another. This sweeping Civil War-era romance won an impressive 10 Academy Awards ( including best picture ), and it's immortal characters Scarlett, Rhett, Ashley, Melanie, Mammy and Prissy populate an epic story of enduring appeal across generations.This is a studio that, in the space of just a few weeks, has issued the first Hitchcock film on these shores in high definition as well as both Gone with the Wind and The Wizard of Oz. Warner's digital team delves into the background of the Technicolor process as well as how it both helps and hinders the remastering process.

The American public took it for granted that Clark Gable would star as Rhett Butler, and they were wholly correct: he does a marvelous job in the part.

En cualquier caso esta perfectamente hecho y da gusto verlo en contraste con VHS (alguno no sabra de que hablo) o DVD. Though this release still strikes me as somewhat less definitive than The Wizard of Oz, it's difficult to feel as if Gone with the Wind has gotten any sort of short thrift with this collectors' set, boasting nearly twenty hours of extras in an eyecatching boxed set. When they talk about defending the honor of the South, I can't shake the impression that they haven't invested any real thought into the war that stands before them.It's appreciated that this is such a faithful remix, as is the inclusion of the original mono audio. Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh star in this epic romantic drama based on Margaret Mitchell's novel set during the American Civil War. continues to impress with its spectacular presentations of its most beloved films on Blu-ray, and it's startling to think that in the span of just a month and a half, Gone with the Wind, North by Northwest, and The Wizard of Oz have all found their way onto the format in such world-class releases.

With its vivacity and emotional impact not having dulled at all over these great many years, Gone with the Wind is a timeless classic in the truest sense of the word.There are no discernible flaws at all: no speckling or wear, no excessive filtering or digital noise reduction, no hint of edge haloes, and no stutters in the compression to speak of. Warner, more than any other major, makes Blu-ray compelling for those of us seeking out more than just the contemporary. Explosions and cannon fire roar from every direction while also coaxing an appropriate snarl from the subwoofer. Perhaps the most intriguing inclusion here is an expansive selection of screentests, most memorably a Technicolor test with Paulette Goddard reading both Scarlett and Mammy. As a fan of GWTW, Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable, this box-set is a treasure chest of facts, quotes and footage and was a complete joy to watch.

A lesser film would've leaned on the sheer spectacle as a crutch; Selznick, meanwhile, views it as a means to an end. This 1992 documentary is divided into three segments, each hosted by a deliriously over-the-top Patrick Stewart. El sonido está mejorado al máximo, pero es menos mejorable que la imagen, desgraciadamente, pero esta bastante bien.Despite its sometimes troubled production (director George Cukor was replaced by Victor Fleming, with Sam Wood brought in when Fleming's health failed), the film won ten Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actress.
