The spoiled daughter of a well-to-do plantation owner is forced to use every means at her disposal to claw her way out of poverty, following Maj. Gen. William Sherman's destructive "March to the Sea,” during the American Civil War.
"Gone with the Wind" exhibits a wistful perspective of the Civil War, in which the "Old South" replaces Camelot and the war was battled less to vanquish the Confederacy and free the slaves as to give Miss Scarlett O'Hara her comeuppance. In any case, we've realized that for quite a long time; the polluted sentimentality goes with the job. However as "GWTW" approaches its 60th commemoration, it is as yet a transcending milestone of film, just in light of the fact that it recounts a decent story, and reveals to it superbly well.
This documentary revisits the making of Gone with the Wind via archival footage, screen tests, insightful interviews and rare film footage.
Red Green Blue Gone with the Wind is a phosphorescent deconstruction of David O. Selznick's Technicolor classic Gone with the Wind (1939). Through the structural devices of condensation, the frame-by-frame separation of the red, green, and blue Tehnicolor layers, and the de-interlacing of the video field, LeVeque presents a destabilized illumination of the relentless romantic nostalgia for the antebellum past.
DVD featurette on the restoration of Gone With The Wind (1939).
This music documentary tracks the meteoric rise of classic rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd as well as the bands' tragic downfall.

When Lynyrd Skynyrd emerged onto the world stage in 1973, it was the result of a collective determination; the group had struggled and fought to gain real recognition ever since their formation eight years before. And although they were initially identified, both in the music industry and in the media, as just another act in the then booming Southern Rock movement, it became quickly apparent that not only were Skynyrd a distinctly individual collective, but also they had the potential to become one of the finest rock bands in history. Led by the headstrong and domineering Ronnie Van Zant, a tough, blue collar brawler with a powerful stage presence, distinctive vocals and gritty, honest lyrics, his energy and vision propelled the group until its tragic end in 1977. This films tells the story of the rise and fall of a remarkable band.
