The variant colorway is beautiful, but . . . stairs going up her skirt? How can you not giggle when you look at it?

Seems like the bottom scene is a bit excessive. I think it would have been better with the stairs not being quite so huge or even without it entirely. Maybe just blended into the dress better? I don't know. Eh.

I'm glad he remembered to paste on the "THE" before he printed it. It just wouldn't be the same movie with the title GONE WITH WIND.

(Actually, now that I think about it--a poster that already has a staircase going up a woman's skirt, and the word "Seminal," and is printed on foil . . . might as well go with GONE WITH WIND. Why not?)

that whole title treatment seems off to me - the height changes in each word, the kearning between the "w's" and "i's" . . . even the width of the "W" in Wind. The justifying on both sides seemed to really throw it off. Can't un-see.

At a quick glance I would probably really like this poster (if I cared about a Gone With Wind poster at all), but the more I look at it, the less I like it.

The landscape and Scarlett's upper half are typical fantastic LD . . . the layout and some of the little things make it an easy pass for me.
