Reviewer:Maliejandra (USA) - See all my reviewsThis movie is a historical film on many levels. It excellently portrays the old south (美國南北戰爭時代的南部), a civilization "gone with the wind." It seemlessly adapts the rather long Margaret Mitchell best seller onto the screen. It won a historic eight Oscars including the first to a black actor (Hattie McDaniel). And aside from all of these things, it is a highly entertaining film.
For those who are unfamiliar with the story, I just recommend seeing the film. It has a little bit of everything, though it is certainly heavy on the sentiment. It is, after all, an homage to the glory of the old south. Scarlett O'Hara (Vivien Leigh) is a rather flirtatious girl who finds herself insanely jealous when she finds out that Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard) is to marry his cousin Melanie Hamilton (Olivia de Havilland). Suddenly, the south enters a war with the north and the world becomes chaotic. A scoundrel from Charleston named Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) is a constant companion to Scarlett though she treats him badly. It is obvious that he loves her, but she is too enraptured with Ashley. Battling poverty and responsibility when she aches for the life of luxury she led before the war, Scarlett strives for happiness when everyone else has lost their strength.
There are many gorgeous scenes in the movie; each scene stands out as a work of art. Who could forget the simplicity of the women strolling down the grand staircase at the Wilkes' barbeque? Or what about Eric Linden's heartwrenching screams as he fights to keep his leg? What a powerful statement the field of wounded and dying soldiers makes as the torn Confederate flag weakly waves in the breeze! And who is not jarred by the impact of the red sky against the hopelessness of the war torn fields of Georgia? Scene after scene cements itself into the unconscious and becomes more powerful with each viewing.
There are many interesting behind-the-scenes stories to be told about the film, many of which are included in the 1989 documentary included on disk three. Most interesting about this piece is perhaps the audition footage with some of the top names in Hollywood. Also on this disk are features about the restoration of the film and footage of the premieres.
