Gone With the Wind 75th Anniversary Blu-Ray Review
 


Synopsis:  Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh, Olivia de Havilland, Leslie Howard and Hattie McDaniel star in this classic epic of the American South. On the eve of the Civil War, rich, beautiful and self-centered Scarlett O'Hara (Leigh) has everything she could want - except Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard). As the war devastates the South, Scarlett discovers the strength within herself to protect her family and rebuild her life. Through everything, she longs for Ashley, unaware that she is already married to the man she really loves (Gable) - and who truly loves her - until she finally drives him away. Only then does Scarlett realize what she has lost ... and tries to win him back.


Review:  I will preface this by confessing that Gone With the Wind is my all-time favorite film.   I love every second of this classic feature.  This film is adored by millions to this day and what better way to celebrate the pinnacle 75th anniversary than with this box set.  The goodies inside are adorned by a gorgeous box. The insides give us an amazing book, collectible hankerchief and music box, along with the Blu-ray version of the film.  There is nothing about this set that doesn't scream fantastic.  This is not only a must have, but it would also make an amazing gift.  The price is right and the extras are abundant (see below).  There is so much win here, and if you don't agree, frankly my dear,I don't give a damn!  You like what I did there?  Yeah, I knew you would.
