Turning off the personalized advertising setting won’t stop you from seeing Etsy ads, but it may make the ads you see less relevant or more repetitive. Selznick’s epic Academy Award-winning masterpiece swept away audiences and defined what a Hollywood blockbuster should be: fearless filmmaking with a grand scope, intimate drama and enduring romance… all in stunning Technicolor. Although Gone with the Wind's primary interest is undoubtably its characters, the film still serves as a visual spectacle.

Try to imagine any star today filling Gables’s shoes as Rhett Butler in Gone With The Wind and you’ll see what I mean. What sets Rhett apart from the more respectable Southern gentlemen pictured here is that they march in lockstep with what's expected of them. A background hiss is more pronounced in the monaural soundtrack, and it sounds somewhat harsher by comparison to the lossless remix.It includes footage from some of the 90 screen-tests for the part of Scarlett O’Hara, with Margaret Sullivan, Paulette Goddard, Lana Turner and of course Vivien Leigh. 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.

The bulk of them revolve around the cast, and while it's beyond any argument that Gone with the Wind owes so much of its success to the talent in front of the camera, it seems as if there's so much more that could've been addressed.SD): "The Legend Lives On" picks up where Making of a Legend leaves off, delving into the legacy and longevity of Gone with the Wind. One of the best features of this entire box-set is Melanie Remembers: Reflections by Olivia de Havilland. The documentary draws from newly-conducted -- as of 1992, at least -- interviews as well as a massive assortment of archival footage, and, of course, excerpts from the many dozens of films highlighted throughout have been included as well. SD): This collectors' edition of Gone with the Wind doesn't ignore the sprawling supporting cast either, offering mini-featurettes on Thomas Mitchell, Barbara O'Neill, Evelyn Keyes, Ann Rutherford, Hattie McDaniel, Oscar Polk, Butterfly McQueen, Leslie Howard, Rand Brooks, Caroll Nye, Laura Hope Crews, Eddie Anderson, Harry Davenport, Jane Darwell, Ona Munson, and Cammie King. Keep in mind that anyone can view public collections - they may also appear in recommendations and other places.

Finally, a soundtrack CD sampler features eight of the most memorable cues from the film and runs just shy of 34 minutes in length. Gone with the Wind draws much of its strength from its striking use of color, and these hues play a key role in shaping the mood and tone of the film. 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. 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.Though Gone with the Wind is a four disc set, the soundtrack CD sampler is packaged apart from the rest of the discs. Therefore, I cannot review this element of the collection, however the quality is amazing and no doubt the commentary provides information and detail.
