‘Gone with the Wind’ returns to HBO Max with disclaimer
“Gone with the Wind” is back on HBO Max, but it is not alone.
The streaming platform made the 1939 film available for viewing on Tuesday, but it also added two additional videos to address the inaccurate and racist historical depictions in the movie: “‘Gone With the Wind:' A Complicated Legacy” and “Hattie McDaniel: What a Character!” according to the Hollywood Reporter.
In an introduction to the movie, TCM host Jacqueline Stewart denounces the misrepresentations while examining the film’s historical context.
HBO Max pulled the movie from its platform temporarily two weeks ago amid anti-racism protests following the death of George Floyd.
