A-Z #85: Gone with the Wind

You can pick up hundreds of DVDs for a round-pound each - it doesn't matter. It's never about quantity, it's about quality. A-Z is my way of going through my collection, from A-Z, and understanding why I own the films ... or you can tell me why I should sell 'em

#85 - Gone with the Wind 

Why did I buy it?

Because, in the same way as a bunch of the ones I have bought "How can I call myself a film fan when I haven't seen Gone with the Wind". Well, now I have bought it and I have watched it. So there. Shut your face.

Why do I still own it?

Well I wrote a huge analysis on this post about a year ago so, if you want depth, go there. But ultimately, it is a good film. Brilliant, epic story with two lead characters in Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh that represent an almost flawless time in American Cinema. The soundtrack by Max Steiner is brilliant and the length of the film, though it could be a problem, in fact can be seen as a Part I and a Part II because it is a very clear interval which can separate the film over two nights. As good as people say - and therefore worth the purchase. Alongside all the huge amount of special features on the 4-disc boxset!

  1. One of my all-time favorites. Definitely keep it (particularly with all those extra features).

  2. I haven't seen it (shocking, I know). But I still call myself a film fan. It sounds dreadful.
