Gone With the Wind 70th Anniversary DVD

On November 17, Warner Home Video (WHV) will honor the romantic epic with a stunningly restored and remastered version, available for the first time on Blu-ray™.  Gone with the Wind 70th Anniversary Ultimate Collectors Edition is sure to be a “must-have” for collectors of classic films, available both in Blu-ray as well as on DVD.

Gone with the Wind is the grandest, most ambitious and spectacular piece of filmmaking in cinematic history. With more than 50 speaking roles and 2400 extras, the film is the quintessential Hollywood epic – considered a “must have” for collectors, and one that can be watched again and again for generations to come.
 
Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh, Leslie Howard and Olivia de Havilland star in Gone with the Wind, which for more than a half century has thrilled audiences with its eternal love affair, set in the South against the backdrop of the Civil War, between handsome Rhett Butler (Gable) and his sassy, headstrong heroine Scarlett O’Hara (Leigh). With each new generation, Gone with the Wind continues to grow in popularity as new audiences discover and embrace the David O. Selznick production of Margaret Mitchell’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel.

The movie is part of today’s pop culture. With memorable scenes and unforgettable dialogue, this movie is timeless. The burning of Atlanta, the long staircase in Scarlett O’Hara’s house, Tara, Scarlet wearing a dress made of draperies, and many more scenes are embedded in the minds of movie lovers.

Scarlett’s statements of “As God is my witness, I’ll never be hungry again,” “Fiddle-dee-dee,” “I’ll think about that tomorrow,” and “Tomorrow is another day” are engrained in the memories of fans. Prissy’s unforgettable utterance of “I don’t know nothin’ ‘bout birthin’ babies,” is a line which no on who has seen the film can forget. And finally, Rhett Butler had some treasured lines, including telling Scarlett, “You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how,” which melts the hearts of female viewers. But his most memorable line is part of movie history. “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.” This one line caught the attention of moviegoers seventy years ago, when no swear words had been uttered on the big screen.
