'Gone With the Wind' is back on HBO Max with a disclaimer

Twitter

'Gone With the Wind' has returned to HBO Max after it was pulled from the streaming service over the need to address its "racist depictions".

This time it comes with an over four-minute video disclaimer warning viewers of its depictions of slavery.

It also has film scholar Jacqueline Stewart discussing "why this 1939 epic drama should be viewed in its original form, contextualized and discussed".

"Eighty years after its initial release, 'Gone with the Wind' is a film of undeniable cultural significance. It is not only a major document of Hollywood's racist practices of the past but also an enduring work of popular culture that speaks directly to the racial inequalities that persist in media and society today," she added.
