This is undoubtedly a five-star effort, yet it just seems as if a wider net than this could've been cast, and its more limited scope leaves Gone with the Wind somewhat overshadowed by the exceptionally diverse extras on The Wizard of Oz. The film adaptation that soon followed continues to hold the record for the most box office admissions of all time, and between its many successful re-releases over the past seven decades, its tally adjusted for inflation approaches one and a half billion dollars. But the second half shifts gear, the melodramatic quotient is upped yet further as tragedy piles upon tragedy, and despite its unwieldy length everything feels rushed.

The immaculate costume design is that much more impressive in high definition, and such moments as the streets of Atlanta blanketed by hundreds upon hundreds of wounded soldiers make even more of impact with its imagery now so clear and distinct. 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. Wonderfully epic in scope, the decline and fall of the antebellum South as seen through the eyes of feisty, independent and wilful heroine Scarlett O'Hara makes the first half of the picture an absolutely riveting spectacle. Add to that the central problem that the audience never really understands, why Scarlett could ever fall for weak-chinned Ashley in the first place, and the picture begins to unravel unsatisfactorily.A sleeve labeled "Art of Gone with the Wind" opens to reveal ten pieces of conceptual artwork for the film's lavish plantation sets. Scarlett clearly finds some comfort in the convenience of a reasonably loyal multimillionaire, but it's never overwhelmingly clear how much more than that, if anything at all, Rhett actually means to her. It's argued in one of the extras on this disc that the most intense relationship in the film isn't between Scarlett and Rhett but between Scarlett and Mammy.

Esta es una valoracion del bluray ASIN B00LTQPB6W Es la edicion italiana del 75 aniversario, la mas completa de las que habia disponibles, aunque el master es exactamente el mismo que se utilizó para el 70 aniversario, yo tengo ambos ahora y diría que sin embargo este del 75 lo percibo algo más nítido, pero puede ser una impresión subjetiva.Hattie McDaniel took home a well-deserved Academy Award -- the first for an African-American -- for her work here as Mammy. This really is a spectacular package, although the extras on the discs themselves aren't quite as expansive or diverse as those on The Wizard of Oz.

In a more traditionally constructed screenplay, Gone with the Wind would've ended shortly after where the intermission is here, but the film chooses instead to follow the two lovers well after the Civil War has come to an end. de Havilland speaks quite a bit about Vivien Leigh as well, contrasting their very different approaches to getting into character, the toll Leigh's self-imposed manic work schedule took on her, and revisiting with her at the Civil War Centennial premiere in Atlanta.

It notes the presence of actual Confederate soldiers at the film's premiere in Atlanta, its enormous success across the world, and how much of a draw Gone with the Wind has continued to be throughout its many theatrical re-releases. Explosions and cannon fire roar from every direction while also coaxing an appropriate snarl from the subwoofer.

Through the love affairs of its central characters, the movie also explores the norms of the old South, the emotional and financial devastation of the war, and the opportunities of the new South in the wake of the war.
