Editorial Reviews

In the '30s, audio technology was relatively primitive, even for movies. So for years the original Max Steiner score for Gone With the Wind presumably went the way implied by its title, that is until the '60s when Selznick studios executors discovered the lost masters. Now, for the first time, this two-disc digital restoration presents the original Steiner soundtrack in its entirety. Besides the well-remembered "Tara's Theme," these tracks reveal the composer's penchant for dramatic underscoring with lushly romantic melodies, including motifs from Stephen Foster and other Old South strains. For soundtrack aficionados, the music satisfies despite the relatively primitive recording quality of the time. Also included is a 52-page illustrated booklet covering the novel's origins, the film's production, and asides about the actors. --Joseph Lanza

The original Steiner recordings of this film were discovered in the 60's and had never received an original soundtrack issue. All soundtracks of the film prior to this deluxe edition were re-recordings of the score. Now we get the original full length recordings. Sure, the fidelity has moments of weakness, but the historical value of the tracks are reason enough to overlook any shortcomings. All of the film's wonderful visuals will leap into your mind when listening. Steiner's use of themes from American standards blended with his own compositions is brilliant. I hear new things every time I listen.

This CD includes all of the "major" musical numbers in GWTW (such as the "Tara's Theme", of course) and is probably sufficient for most casual listeners. However, I was quite disappointed to find that many of the great pieces of background music found in the movie are missing. One example is the wonderful but brief segment of the "Southern Belle Waltz" that plays while Scarlett and Rhett scandalize Atlanta by dancing while she's still "in mourning". Another beautiful piece is the lush little harp & string segment at the end of Ashley Wilke's Christmas leave (where Scarlett watches him return to the war and vows to win him over), and the mournful church bell & string tune that follows (as we learn that the South is losing the war). I strongly recommend that you buy the "Deluxe" 2-CD version that contains these and many other little pieces of music instead. It's worth the extra dollars!

What a pleasure to be able to hear virtually all of the original soundtrack! I bought the standard vinyl original soundtrack recording in the late 60's after the theatrical re-release that introduced me to what was to become my all-time favorite film, and eventually wore it out through overuse. It was worth the wait to be able to replace it with this fine effort, which includes deluxe packaging and a beautiful 52-page booklet on the making of the film. Granted, one wonders if perhaps the music could have been better restored but I suppose caution is indicated--overzealous use of noise-reduction technology has ruined many a remastering effort. No matter; the first few notes brought tears to my eyes.
I advise GWTW fans to go the extra mile and invest in this two-disk definitive set that will grace any collection. And for the uninitiated, my advice is to "go for it." Max Steiner, who blessed generations of movie goers with scores for such classics as King Kong; Now, Voyager; and Casablanca, composed one of the most famous and recognizable soundtracks in cinema history for what many believe to be the greatest movie of all time--find out why.

Max Steiner had a melodic and romantic style. His compositions could make any body weep to tears. This can be felt in his wonderful score for "Gone with the Wind". Since he had worked under the baton of Gustav Mahler, Steiner inherited much from the classical music. The soundtrack of David Selznick's spectacular stravaganza is a truly remarkable score in its grandeur, romantic and pompous moments. Frankly, my dear, you don't wanna miss it, do you?

A wonderful 2 disc soundtrack of the film. I know GWTW like a second language, but I was pleasantly surprised to hear music that I never noticed before such as Charles Hamilton Challenges Rhett, and many other "extended" versions.
Rudy Behlmer's liner notes are enlightening, informative, and make for interesting reading.
Max Steiner enthusiasts, and soundtrack aficionados will relish this set.

The music score for Gone With the Wind is unsurpassed. Steiner's use of dramatic notes and love themes make up a great soundtrack. The Tara theme, Scarlett's theme and the Finale are symphonic. It's like hearing a great overture for an equally great film. IF you liked Gone With The Wind the movie the music is a vintage.

Five years ago, I left a review that was mostly whining about purchasing very expensive copies from the secondhand market being my only option to owning a tangible physical copy of this amazing set. But the classic platitude states "good things come to those who wait." Wait I did, and come it did. A few years passed until one day, I noticed that someone was selling their copy, still in fairly good condition, for, oh, about 20 bucks. Ka-ching!

Being able to finally hold the product in my hands, I can now comment on everything this set has to offer, and if you can afford 40+ dollars for a set, it's well worth it.

The star of the set, naturally, is the music - almost every bit of music from the film and even some that didn't make it. Finally, you can hear that glorious main title AS HEARD IN THE FILM - there have been many great re-recordings over the years, but I much prefer hearing the actual music from the film when possible. Feels more organic. Incredible suites that bring images from the film vividly into your mind. As you end CD1, you can picture Scarlett O'Hara, exhausted, dirty, yet defiant, with her fist in the air, vowing she nor her family will ever starve. During the penultimate track on disc 2, you can almost hear Rhett Butler tell Scarlett off once and for all. Sound quality is not pristine - these are recordings that pre-date magnetic tape, there are limitations that even the best digital technology cannot overcome. The great news is that Rhino saw fit not to muck with the sound too much - the recordings haven't been scrubbed so clean of noise that they now sound like garbage, no fake stereo has been applied, no over-boosting, nothing.
