  1. I love Gone With The Wind, haven't seen it in years. Maybe I will treat myself to the DVD.
    Good Luck with your new blog.

  2. I love that they are adding so many features to the new DVD. I have the old 4-Disc Version so I'm thinking if I'm going to get it. The new picture transfer sounds intriguing. Maybe I'll get the BluRay set. At least that's a bigger upgrade.
