The Lion's Roar" opens with the merger that created MGM and the factory mentality the studio would have to adopt to meet its ambitious goal of releasing a new feature film every week. com, the Sell on Etsy app, and the Etsy app, as well as the electricity that powers Etsy’s global offices and employees working remotely from home in the US. This segment's primary focus is on the two forces that propelled MGM to become the largest, most successful, and most admired studio in Hollywood: wunderkind head of production Irving Thalberg and studio chief Louis B. A lesser film would've leaned on the sheer spectacle as a crutch; Selznick, meanwhile, views it as a means to an end.

de Havilland speaks quite a bit about Vivien Leigh as well, contrasting their very different approaches to getting into character, the toll Leigh's self-imposed manic work schedule took on her, and revisiting with her at the Civil War Centennial premiere in Atlanta. 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.In stark contrast is the true heroine of Gone with the Wind, Melanie Wilkes: as forgiving as Scarlett is spiteful, as forthright as Scarlett is scheming, and as frail as Scarlett is strong. This exclusive 2004 documentary includes Olivia’s memories which are so vivid and detailed that it’s as if it was only yesterday as opposed to 1939! Warner's digital team delves into the background of the Technicolor process as well as how it both helps and hinders the remastering process.

Hattie McDaniel took home a well-deserved Academy Award -- the first for an African-American -- for her work here as Mammy.Its sights are also aimed at Norma Shearer, John Gilbert, Erich von Stroheim, Lon Chaney, Greta Garbo, Clark Gable, Lionel Barrymore, Maureen O'Sullivan, Jean Harlow, Spencer Tracy, Vivien Leigh, Lana Turner, Hedy Lamarr, Buster Keaton, and Elizabeth Taylor, among quite a number of others. The documentary draws from newly-conducted -- as of 1992, at least -- interviews as well as a massive assortment of archival footage, and, of course, excerpts from the many dozens of films highlighted throughout have been included as well.

As someone who has yet to read the Margaret Mitchell novel, I appreciate that Behlmar takes the time to highlight some of the differences between this adaptation and the printed page: characters that are fused together, material that has been softened to suit the filmgoing audiences of 1939, and other subplots and objectionable moments that are excised entirely. Also tucked inside are a booklet summarizing the extras along with a series of advertisements, including offers for a Gone with the Wind cuckoo clock and a charm bracelet. A number of his comments about Mitchell, such as her secretive writing process and her dissatisfaction with the text the introduces the film, aren't addressed anywhere else in the extras on this disc.The Lion Reigns Supreme" takes a look at the new slate of actors and actresses to sign with the studio at the peak of its success during WWII as well as how its star was beginning to lose its luster. After being charged to assist as a man's leg is amputated with all forms of anaesthesia long since exhausted, Scarlett can take it no longer.

I was fascinated by the way the characters, of which there are many, contrasted with each other, complemented one another, and represented different virtues and attitudes to life. This documentary reflects Clark’s incredible career and legacy told through pictures, old footage and interviews with Director William Wellmann, Adela Rogers St Johns, Andy Devine and Yvonne De Carlo. Here is my review of the product rather than the film- To begin the entire set is enclosed in an attractive glossy case with the GWTW title in the iconic colours and font. Through the love affairs of its central characters, the movie also explores the norms of the old South, the emotional and financial devastation of the war, and the opportunities of the new South in the wake of the war. For those seeking out something to read, though, a 20 page reproduction of an original playbill offers brief biographies and even reasonably lengthy retrospectives by both Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable.From a dramatic sense, though, this still works in Gone with the Wind -- Uncle Peter, Big Sam, Prissy, and Mammy are treated more as part of the family -- and I can still appreciate the film while accepting the sometimes unfortunate context of its era. Finally, a soundtrack CD sampler features eight of the most memorable cues from the film and runs just shy of 34 minutes in length. SD): The city of Atlanta celebrated the Civil War Centennial with another gala premiere of Gone with the Wind, and David O. Though this release still strikes me as somewhat less definitive than The Wizard of Oz, it's difficult to feel as if Gone with the Wind has gotten any sort of short thrift with this collectors' set, boasting nearly twenty hours of extras in an eyecatching boxed set. Warner, more than any other major, makes Blu-ray compelling for those of us seeking out more than just the contemporary.
