Behlmar is somewhat quiet throughout the final half hour, but this last stretch still offers some terrific comments, reflecting on the Southern accents that are and aren't present throughout the film and the abysmal alternate ending that had been unsuccessfully pitched to Selznick. Gone with the Wind is a 1939 American epic historical romance film adapted from the 1936 novel by Margaret Mitchell. SD): The first of the video-based extras in this collectors' edition is the feature-length documentary Making of a Legend from 1988. Its dialogue may also be the most eminently quotable of any single film released before Casablanca, and Gone with the Wind is, of course, flawlessly cast.

Rhett is all too aware that Scarlett will bring him nothing but heartache and frustration, and yet he's unable to turn away.It notes the presence of actual Confederate soldiers at the film's premiere in Atlanta, its enormous success across the world, and how much of a draw Gone with the Wind has continued to be throughout its many theatrical re-releases. This audio commentary with Rudy Behlmar is in every way exceptional, and even with the sheer volume of extras spread across this set, this is the most essential of them all. Each of their strengths -- Mayer's brilliance at assembling such a sprawling roster of talent and Thalberg's golden touch as a producer -- are explored at length, and "The Lion's Roar" delves further into both the scandals and successes of this early era of MGM. These featurettes are divided into three groups -- "At Tara", "At Twelve Oaks", and "In Atlanta" -- and segmented out further from there.

Along with the colossal success of Gone with the Wind, "Scarlett and Beyond" touches on her earlier British films as well as more recognizable titles like Waterloo Bridge, Caesar and Cleopatra, and Ship of Fools. This sweeping Civil War-era romance won an impressive 10 Academy Awards ( including best picture ), and it's immortal characters Scarlett, Rhett, Ashley, Melanie, Mammy and Prissy populate an epic story of enduring appeal across generations. It's appreciated that this is such a faithful remix, as is the inclusion of the original mono audio. There are no discernible flaws at all: no speckling or wear, no excessive filtering or digital noise reduction, no hint of edge haloes, and no stutters in the compression to speak of.It too is beautifully designed, featuring a slew of posters from the world over, dozens of production stills and promotional photos, a gallery of behind-the-scenes shots, and even quite a bit of conceptual artwork.

Some of the actors, directors, and producers featured here in interviews new and old are Katharine Hepburn, Mickey Rooney, Roddy McDowall, Cyd Charisse, Debbie Reynolds, June Allyson, Margaret Sullivan, Van Johnson, Ricardo Montalban, Groucho Marx, Charlton Heston, Gene Kelly, Joan Crawford, John Huston, David Lean, Judy Garland, Johnny Weissmuller, Richard Brooks, and Samuel Marx. The texture of its film grain seems appropriate, certainly not suffering from any signs of being artificially smeared away and faintly visible in the way I'd expect from a vintage Technicolor release.

The only topic I would've liked to have seen addressed that isn't touched on at all is MGM's success at animation. This disc contains three documentaries about the main cast as well as a mini-documentary titled The Supporting Players: Cameo Portraits of an Unforgettable Ensemble. Of course, we all know how this story ends, and the documentary comes to a close with the film's gala premiere in Atlanta, its incomparable success at the box office, and the armful of statuettes it would go on to take home at the Academy Awards the following year.

Why, you ask: because of the super rich man whose wealth just seems to be there, conveniently ready to be exploited by the enterprising female protagonist. Not surprisingly for a commentary running nearly four hours in length, this conversation with Behlmar is startlingly comprehensive.Its sparkling dialogue, the intriguingly complex relationship between Scarlett and Rhett, a sprawlingly epic scope, a flair that transcends the maudlin or traditionally melodramatic, and its visual spectacle made the film the most colossal success of its era, and Gone with the Wind has yet to be rivaled in the seven decades that have since passed.
