Warner has also set a Gone with the Wind: 75th Anniversary Ultimate Collector’s Edition box set for release on Blu-ray on 9/30 (SRP $49.99). Just in case you don’t already have the film on BD yet. All of the previous disc-based extras will be included, as will 2 new features, including footage of Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh attending the original movie premiere in Atlanta and the Old South/New South documentary on the film’s locations and how they’ve changed over time. From the press release, this will be “fittingly presented in limited and numbered sets, with new collectible packaging, new enhanced content and new collectible memorabilia. The memorabilia includes a replica of Rhett Butler’s handkerchief and a music box paperweight playing Tara’s theme with an image on top of the Rhett-Scarlett kiss. Also included is a 36-page companion booklet featuring a look at the immortal style of Gone with the Wind, written by New York fashion designer and Project Runway finalist Austin Scarlett, whose signature look reflects the romantic elegance of the Gone with the Wind era.” So there you go.
