Gone With The Wind – 70th Anniversary Edition DVD

One of the best, most beloved films ever is now available on DVD with three release options for every collector. Gone with the Wind is in stores now, and you can enjoy the remastered classic in Blu-Ray Collector’s EditionStandard Collector’s Edition, or 2-disc Anniversary Edition.

While the standard DVD remaster looks great, and the commentary track by historian Rudy Behlmer is a wonderful trip through this amazing film, it’s hard to imagine not opting upwards for one of the bigger sets.
