A very few words. Warner's new DVD of Gone with the Wind is utterly and undeniably perfect. A beautiful representation of the original intent, restored to perfection. Kudos to everyone involved with the restoration and release. This is the classic film release of 2004. Absolutely magnificent. Bravo! RAH

Bob, Your seal of approval deserves a "sticky" status. To the top of the forum page this goes. Thanks as always!

Yes, one must wholeheartedly agree. Bravo! to the creators, to Warners/George Feltenstein, and to RAH for his approval!

Mr. Harris's approval is good enough for me. I will double dip on this title.

So I sold the old flipper disc on Monday and got the new disc on Wednesday. But unfortunately I'll probably have to wait until at least Thanksgiving to see the whole movie from beginning to end. My only day off.Posted Image Just not enough hours during a work week to experience a movie of this magnitude. But after reading Mr Harris' approval, I may have to watch it through 3-4 days.

That sound you're hearing is another laserdisc being put out to pasture...

I loved the interview with Miss DeHavilland..I felt as if she were in the room with me having a one on one conversation. What a classy lady.

Always re-assuring to get Mr. Harris' seal of approval. Posted Image

On my Christmas list too, so I'll have to wait a bit. But it seems it's really, really worth it.

As usual, Mr. Harris proves once again why we, as members of HTF, are so fortunate to have his wisdom, guidance & perspective, no less his generosity.

I'm very glad this one is coming my way already (by trains and boats and planes). Aftert reading Robert Harris' interview on 'The Bits' with George Feltenstein and Herb Kane's review here, I double-dipped immediately and without hesitation! Posted Image

(And, BTW, the That's Entertainment, The Complete Collection Box Set already arrived at my door. Posted Image Posted Image )

Robert, I totally agree, I am glad to hear your input. You know much more than I'm sure any of us know, as far as what can be expected on this kind of release, and to have your seal of approval is very considerable. And I could not be pleased more! I feel the DVD format has finally been utilized to its fullest! Warner Bros. is doing great justice to their film library!
