Come Home to Tara
In 1939, David O. Selznick’s epic Oscar-winning masterpiece swept away audiences and defined what a Hollywood blockbuster should be: fearless film-making with a grand scope, intimate drama and enduring romance – all in stunning Technicolor. Seventy-five years later, Gone with the Wind remains as breathtaking as ever. Come home to Scarlett O’Hara, Rhett Butler and more of the most beloved and iconic characters of all time.
Gone with the Wind was the first color film to win an Oscar for Best Picture.
Hattie McDaniel was the first African-American actor to be nominated for and to win an Academy Award.
Gary Cooper, who turned down the role of Rhett Butler, is quoted as saying, 'Gone with the Wind is going to be the biggest flop in Hollywood history'.
Because the movie premiere was held in racially segregated Atlanta, Hattie McDaniel was not allowed to attend.
Nearly four hours in length, Gone with the Wind is the longest running movie ever to win a Best Picture Oscar.

Meet the Cast
Scarlett O’Hara (Vivien Leigh)
Charming but spoiled, Scarlett resides on a Georgia plantation during the Civil War. She does whatever is necessary to get what she wants.
Rhett Butler (Clark Gable)
Initially Scarlett’s admirer and ultimately her third husband, Rhett Butler is frequently scorned for his bad behavior but often accepted for his charm.
Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard)
Ashley is a major in the Confederate States Army and married to his cousin. In the infatuated Scarlett’s mind, he is the 'perfect knight'.
Mammy (Hattie McDaniel)
Mammy is a slave who originally belonged to Scarlett’s grandmother. She has been Scarlett’s nurse since birth and is considered 'head woman' on the plantation.
Clark Gable and Vivian Leigh star in the classic, Oscar winning movie Gone with the Wind. Leigh plays Scarlett, a woman who can deal with a nation at war, Atlanta burning, the Union Army carrying off everything from her beloved Tara, the carpetbaggers who arrive after the war. Scarlett is beautiful. She has vitality. But Ashley, the man she has wanted for so long, is going to marry his placid cousin, Melanie. Mammy warns Scarlett to behave herself at the party at Twelve Oaks. There is a new man there that day, the day the Civil War begins. Rhett Butler. Scarlett does not know he is in the room when she pleads with Ashley to choose her instead of Melanie.
There has never been a picture like David O. Selznick's production of Gone With the Wind. --Kate Cameron, New York Daily News
Unlike most historical epics, GWTW has a genuine sweep, a convincing feel for the passage of time. --Roger Ebert
Gone With the Wind endures and deepens with the passing of time because Scarlett and Rhett are as modern as its open ending. --Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

I've owned three other versions of the movie so far and none has given the same quality of sound and visuals as this one so that is definitely something to look forward to for "Gone with the Wind" fans.
At the moment, both the 75th anniversary tokens (the handkerchief and the music box) are still hidden inside the box because I don't know where I can safely store them without my toddler destroying either one, or possibly both. But oh the thrill of listening to the theme song in music box form! Maybe I'll set up a vanity table and put it there just so I can listen to it whenever I put on my makeup.
I've not gotten to watching the special features yet though. I may have to revise my review when I do.
