Classic 1950s movie Gone With The Wind will be shown with its original colours and vital missing sections for the first time in 40 years.

The celebrated romance, starring film legends Clark Gable and VIVIEN LEIGH, was damaged in 1967, when film executives accidentally muted the clours and cut off the top and bottom of the screen to make it compatible with the new Cinemascope format.

But London's NATIONAL FILM THEATRE has restored the film to its former glory and is thrilled fans will be able to see the missing chandeliers and shoes for the first time in four decades, at the city's FILM FESTIVAL next month (NOV04).
