Gone with the Wind
The greatest romance of all time!
An American classic in which a manipulative woman and a roguish man carry on a turbulent love affair in the American south during the Civil War and Reconstruction.
Exceptionally well crafted and laden with characters so fleshed out I half expected them to step out from the big screen into my living room at any minute!
The cinematography and iconic shots such as Rhett Butler standing at the foot of the grand staircase gazing up at Scarlet O'Hara with a come hither look that could melt even the coldest of hearts and cause all the ladies to sigh and go weak in the knees!
Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) met is match when he crossed paths with Scarlett O'Hara ( Vivien Leigh)! Their tale of love, passion and heartache will go down in the annals of history as one of the greatest romances in cinematic history!
The film is…
**Part of the Best Picture**
Few films, if any, accomplish technical excellence, and it’s not hard to see why. Many films, even good ones, have some flaws that keep them from perfection. So it really amazes me that a film like Gone with the Wind with the production history it had managed to be just so damn perfect. There isn’t a thing wrong with it. It is a master class lesson in nearly everything that makes up cinema, and what amazes me even more is how the sheer epic nature of the film holds up even today.
Until this watch, I had not seen Gone with The Wind since I was very young, and my grandmother took me to see…
Film #26 of Project 30
”After all, tomorrow is another day.”
Stories set in war time always offer great drama and character development, passing of time and the changes it brings to the moral values of society and individuals provides writers and film makers with a great chance to study some of the basic principles of life: unfaltering love affected by the tumultuous nature of events, hope for a better future, sacrifice, dismay, misfortune and regret and the most heart-warming of all, determination to bounce back and recreate the glory and power of the past despite all the difficulties ahead.
It is that thematic richness of the life story of Scarlett O'Hara that has enabled Gone with the Wind to…
Okay, I know it's a cliché to consider this among the greatest 1930s movies made, but it's nearly impossible not to be impressed with David O. Selznick pulling off a monster epic of such proportions as Gone with the Wind (1939)!
Visually this was sensational! Such style in every frame. Poetic, classy, haunting and with such color. Those red nights are magical. A masterful job capturing the beauty of the south.
Clark Gable is Rhett! No more needed to be said. A career high, unable to top! Vivien Leigh gets the big part and grabs the chance with both arms and more. An tremendous display rarely ever seen! Clicks perfectly and awards her the Oscar! As her opposite Olivia de…
Rewatched under TCM's rerelease in honor of its 75th anniversary. Surprisingly, this is the first Best Picture film I've rewatched after passing it on the Best Picture Project (a half lie, I've rewatched my share of Citizen Kane).
It's one thing to watch this on its beautiful restored Bluray, but it's another to see it with an audience on a big screen. Funny things are funnier, sad things are sadder, epic sweeps are more epic and sweepier. It's an experience that can't be missed, and the thought that the cinemas might one be swept away into the wind, a relic of the past, is as tragic as the fall of the South.
I don't have much to add. It's as…
Rhett Butler: "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn". I love that line.
The story is about a spoiled Southern girl's hopeless love for a married man. Producer David O. Selznick managed to expand this concept, and Margaret Mitchell's best-selling novel, into nearly four hours' worth of screen time, on a then-astronomical 3.7-million-dollar budget, creating what would become one of the most beloved movies of all time. Gone With the Wind opens in April of 1861, at the palatial Southern estate of Tara, where Scarlett O'Hara (Vivien Leigh) hears that her casual beau Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard) plans to marry "mealy mouthed" Melanie Hamilton (Olivia de Havilland). Despite warnings from her father (Thomas Mitchell) and her faithful servant Mammy…
I really don't know why I liked it so much, it is so cheesy but you enjoy it.
There's this girl who's strong and determinated and we can see how she's forever in love with Ashley, and what price she's willing to pay for his love.
She's a manipulative woman and know how to run it.
Being so old I guess you can kinda tell what happens and I do tent to hate these kind of films but you enjoy it really it's something I can't get yet...
You should just sit down for almost three hours and enjoy this.
It also reflects so much of the 30's of course I guess that's also part of the hook.
I must watch it again
Film #30 of the "Scavenger Hunt #5 Challenge"
Item #28: Long John (At least 2 and half hours
No doubt this is a cinema classic, a triumph in filmmaking. But time has not been kind to this movie. It's boring, too full of itself, the dialogue is stilted, the drama laughable.
Can We Still Be Friends? Episode 29- www.canwestillbefriends.net/ep-29-gone-wind/
Definitely an epic. But jeez, 4 hours?!?
A classic that's worth watching a million times.
I liked the first half more than the second, when it seemed like Scarlett was going to get over herself, but then she went back into spoilt brat mode. Gable is dashing and horrible all at the same time.
"As god as my witness I'll never be hungry again"
Out of all the classic movies I have reviewed the 1939 Epic Romantic Drama Gone with the Wind is the one I was most looking forward to watching. So naturally I made sure this was the last one I reviewed.
I was hyped out of my mind for this movie since last year when the blu ray was released I told myself I would watch Gone with the Wind this year and I am so happy I have finally seen it and after finally watching it. This is the titanic of this year!! In just watching this movie once I can already tell I love this even more than Titanic!!…
Mi dvd con todo y sus intermedios. Sigo sin leer la novela y creo que me quedaré así. Maldita Scarlett y sus hermosos vestidos.
Gone with the Wind is a well-known classic and I was dying to see what all the hype was about. The movie was well put together and the characters were well rounded, but did not appeal to me. This riveting film was full of love, greed, and war. The character I most disliked was Scarlet. I thought she was selfish, entitled, lusty, and always wanting what she couldn't have. However this depiction of her did make the film a lot more interesting. Her ongoing love triangle with Ashley and Rhett while trying to maintain her friendship with Mel was very amusing to me. One thing I absolutely hated was how extensive the film was. For almost three hours, it repeated…
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
