  • GONE WITH THE WIND (5PC) (W/BOOK) / (FULL COLL) - DVD

    Type: Event | Date: Tuesday, Dec 1, 2009

    Includes:Gone With the Wind (1939), MPAA Rating: G The Making of a Legend: Gone with the Wind (1989) Gone With the Wind Gone With the Wind boils down to a story 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 (Hattie McDaniel), Scarlett intends to throw herself at Ashley at an upcoming barbecue at Twelve Oaks. Alone with Ashley, she goes into a fit of histrionics, all of which is witnessed by roguish Rhett Butler (Clark Gable), the black sheep of a wealthy Charleston family, who is instantly fascinated by the feisty, thoroughly self-centered Scarlett: "We're bad lots, both of us." The movie's famous action continues from the burning of Atlanta (actually the destruction of a huge wall left over from King Kong) through the now-classic closing line, "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn." Holding its own against stiff competition (many consider 1939 to be the greatest year of the classical Hollywood studios), Gone With the Wind won ten Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Actress (Vivien Leigh), and Best Supporting Actress (Hattie McDaniel, the first African-American to win an Oscar). The film grossed nearly 192 million dollars, assuring that, just as he predicted, Selznick's epitaph would be "The Man Who Made Gone With the Wind." ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Making of a Legend: Gone with the Wind This made-for-cable documentary traces the filming of the imperishable classic Gone with the Wind, from its inception to its triumphant Atlanta premiere in December of 1939. Filmmaker David Hinton interviews as many survivors of the experience as he's able to round up, but the main attraction of this film is its precious "test" clips. We watch a montage of screen tests of the many actresses considered for the role of Scarlett O'Hara, ranging from such front-runners as Paulette Goddard to such not-a-chancers as Lana Turner. The Goddard footage is particularly enjoyable as we watch her eagerly reciting the lines of all the characters as she auditions for Scarlett. The documentary also turns up several tantalizing bits of trivia, notably the fact that the film was shown to a preview audience with an entirely different musical score (portions of which are played on the soundtrack). There is, of course, very little suspense involved in Making of a Legend, but even those who've heard all the Gone With the Wind factoids from other sources will watch in fascination as the saga unfolds. This documentary was produced by David Selznick's sons, and written by iconoclastic movie historian David Thomson. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

  • Blind Beast vs. Killer Dwarf - DVD

    Type: Event | Date: Tuesday, Nov 24, 2009

    The filmmaker behind such outrageous Japanese cult classics as Female Yakuza Tale, Teruo Ishii, returns to the director's chair to offer a fitting epitaph to his prolific career with a lurid adaptation of Edogawa Rampo's legendary novel. A dark tale of mystery and illusion featuring performances by manga artist Lily Franky, Tetsuo: The Iron Man director Shinya Tsukamoto, Suicide Club director Shion Sono, Sumo Vixens director Takao Nakano, Hole in the Sky director Kazuyoshi Kumakiri, and Black Jack director Makoto Tezuka, as well as special appearances by prolific actor Tetsuro Tamba and performance artist Hisayoshi Hirayama, Blind Beast vs. Killer Dwarf takes viewers on a bizarre and erotic voyage into the realms of sex and death while weaving the nightmarish tale of a dime-novel writer's strange encounter with a misshapen dwarf and a kidnapped actress from an all-female operetta company. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
