    "Gone With The Wind", the movie,  is re-released in this 1998 New Line film.  "Gone With The Wind" is the winner of eight Academy Awards when it was originally released in December 1939 including Best Picture. 

    The new prints use Technicolor's revived dye transfer process which  means that they are from a dye-trnasfer copy and then digitally enhanced as opposed to say creating them from the original three strip nitrate negative. The original 1:33-to-1 aspect ratio has been restored and the sound has ben digitally remastered. Previous reissue version of the classic had a 1:85 to 1 ratio.  The current ratio appears closer to square and is true to the original. 

    The original December 1939 version was a long 223 minutes. This release will also be presented with its original overture, an intermission and exit music as planned by Mr. Sleznick. That's four hours with a 15 minute intermission about the Civil War and a Georgia women who seems to cope with everything but the love of one man. 

    Restoration - EDS Digital Studios, a Los Angeles based restoration company, spent more than 12 months digitally repairing what many had considered permanent damage to the film's negatives. EDS's 30 visual-effects artists worked frame-by-frame to restore 18,000 frames which translates into 12 minutes and 30 seconds of film. They worked on an as-needed basis focusing on the most dramatic scenes. The cost to digitally restoring the damaged frames is incredibly steep because each frame is done individually by hand on a compositing system.
