Gone with the Wind 70th Anniversary 5-Disc DVD set: LIMITED and NUMBERED one-of-a-kind Velvet Box packaging. Contains the feature film mastered in hi-definition plus more than 8 hours of timeless extras, including an all new documentary narrated by Kenneth Branagh “Warner Bros. Home Entertainment presents 1939: Hollywood's Greatest Year,” “Gone with the Wind: The Legend Lives On” featurette, and much more. Collectibles include an Exclusive 52-pg Hardcover Photo and Production Art Book, ten (10) 5”x7” frameable Watercolor Reproduction Art Prints, Bonus CD Soundtrack Sampler, and Reproduction of the Original 1939 Program.
David O. Selznick wanted Gone with the Wind to be somehow more than a movie, a film that would broaden the very idea of what a film could be and do and look like. In many respects he got what he worked so hard to achieve in this 1939 epic (and all-time box-office champ in terms of tickets sold), and in some respects he fell far short of the goal. While the first half of this Civil War drama is taut and suspenseful and nostalgic, the second is ramshackle and arbitrary. But there's no question that the film is an enormous achievement in terms of its every resource--art direction, color, sound, cinematography--being pushed to new limits for the greater glory of telling an American story as fully as possible. Vivien Leigh is still magnificently narcissistic, Olivia de Havilland angelic and lovely, Leslie Howard reckless and aristocratic. As for Clark Gable: we're talking one of the most vital, masculine performances ever committed to film. --Tom Keogh

|Still has cut, from the original!!!||
I think you are imagining things. GWTW has not been cut since its release. Unless you saw the sneak preview.

If your VHS came in a box, it is the entire film. Actually, I never saw a cut "TV" version. Twenty years ago, the VHS box sets cost 100 bucks a pop. Why in the world would you honestly think that you had an incomplete copy of the film from a box set?

Wendy - I would only suggest you compare the picture on the DVD version of GWTW to the picture on the blu-ray of Adventures of Robin Hood and I think you will be sold on this new set.
