Product Description

Discs 1 & 2: GONE WITH THE WIND Disc 3: CASABLANCA Disc 4: DOCTOR ZHIVAGO

Amazon.com

This four-disc set, part of Warner's Essential Classics series, collects three truly classic films--Gone with the Wind, Casablanca, and Doctor Zhivago--in one inexpensive package. The drawback is you don't get the bonus second discs of the movies--or, in the case of the deluxe version of Gone with the Wind, the third and fourth discs (the movie of Zhivago is still on a two-sided "flipper" disc)--so if you're a documentary junky or if you simply have to see the Casablanca TV show, you'll want to stick with the individual releases. But this set does include the commentary tracks and any other material that was on the movie discs of those sets, and best of all, they have the great remastered pictures of the previous releases. So if you just want the movies looking better than ever with some bonus features thrown in for good measure, the price per movie makes this set an attractive bargain. --David Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value for the Money. August 4, 2007
This set is a bargain. Three of the finest movies of all time in one set for about $30.00. Packaging is done well, with a nice cover. For those who complain that "Gone With the Wind" is not in widescreen format - please understand that there is NO widescreen version of "Gone With the Wind" as widescreen didn't appear until the 1950's and GWTW ("Gone With the Wind") was filmed in 1939! Great performances in all three films and GWTW's cinematography is so excellent that nearly every scene is a painting. So tragic that Leslie Howard, who played Ashley Wilkes in GWTW, was killed only a few years later in World War Two. Great movies all, and a great package deal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great bargin all these movies for so little! February 6, 2009
I don't honestly care that the one disk that others are complaining about, does not have a printed image on it. Many DVD's come this way, and because it's a dual sided disk then they can't print on it.

Personally I'm happy with the price and quality of packing. If it really bothers you then buy them individually. Otherwise be happy at the saving!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Movies and Price, but awful packaging! October 18, 2007
I have to agree with previous reviews that this was a great price for three great movies, however, I was very dissapointed with the packaging. It appears that they took discs from the single sets (that probably were not selling) and repackaged them into this disc. I tend to be very meticulous with my packaging, and it bothers me that the disc for Casablanca says DISC 1, but there is no DISC 2. In addition, when you unfold the packaging, GWTW and CASABLANCA have "pretty" discs, and then you have the ugly clear faced disk for Zhivago.

It is true that if all you are looking for is the movie, then this a great set, but if you like packaging as well, buy the individual movies.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3 classics in one August 24, 2007
I love the quality of the reproductions. Gone with the Wind is 2 disks, that is good, Casablanca is one disk, and why would they put Dr. Zhivago on a 2 sided disk? Couldn't the producers of this set put Dr Z on 2 disks also for those of us who store our disks in a machine?

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Classics March 10, 2007
These are three of my favorite movies with some of the best performances I have seen.

Clark Gable was great in "Gone with the Wind", but Vivien Leigh was magnificent and made me a lifelong fan with this movie.

Humphrey Bogart and the beautiful Ingrid Bergman, who could ask for more? In "Casablanca" you also get a great script and "As Time Goes By."

"Doctor Zhivago" gave me my first look into the Russia of the early 20th century. It is also a passionate love story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great movie package November 29, 2007
Verified Purchase
Three wonderful classic romantic movies in one package. What a great idea! And the price can't be beat. The only negative is that Doctor Zhivago is on a dual-sided disk. Of course, that was only a negative because there's nothing in the package that clearly indicates this and the print on the disk is so small it's difficult to read. Once you know to turn the disk over for part 2, it's not an issue.

I love these movies and having them in one package is terrific. In fact, I bought one for my daughter for Christmas. (I'll be sure to tell her about the Doctor Zhivago disk, of course.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great films, great value November 16, 2008
Verified Purchase
I bought these film a year and half ago for 12 bucks it was worth every dollar. If they were bought one at a time you would never beat this price. Even at the 20 bucks Amazon wants now it is still a great value. All three are AFI and Oscar winners and I think great films. There are a few extras on each.
