Why are they releasing a 2 disc Gone with the Wind? Why do companies do this? Release a 4 disc then release a 2 disc later, or a 2 disc now then a single disc later...it drives me nuts!

I'm assuming because not everybod baught the 4th disc set (like me) with all the bells and whistles. A 2 disc set sounds pretty good to me. Kind of like what they did with Wizard Of Oz. I was quite happy with the recent 2 disc set. More choices for the consumer is always a good thing

Definitely getting Captains Courageous, Johnny Belinda and The Good Earth. Lust for Life and Kitty Foyle are possibilities.
I haven't seen too many warner classics being released lately, but this sounds good.

Doesn't Warner Bros. own the rights for the movie "Big Shots"? That needs to come out finally.

I'm glad they're releasing a 2-disc of Gone With the Wind. I'd rather pay $15 for that instead of $30 for the 4-disc.

The extras really are worth the extra money, though. I mean, for $15 you get a feature-length documentary on the film, academy award footage, newsreels, trailers... lengthy documentaries on Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh, a new interview with Olivia de Havilland, and a documentary covering every supporting actor/actress of the film.

Heck, just having a new interview with de Havilland is worth the price of the whole set. How many times do we get to watch brand new interviews with stars from the 1930's?

How many times will people who aren't interested watch it at all?

Keep in mind, I *love* the four-disc set. But what bothers me is only when they discontinue the better version in favor of an inferior. As long as the four-disc is available, I don't care how many other versions they put out. They could cram it all onto one disc, wouldn't bother me.

And with this release of "Cimarron", we inch one step closer to having every Oscar-winning Best Picture on DVD (we're still waiting on "Wings" and "Cavalcade")!
