Kenneth Turan's DVD picks: In these two epic films, size matters

'Once Upon a Time in America,' 'Gone With the Wind' are @KennethTuran's DVD picks of the week

Some stories simply demand the epic length of a major motion picture, and two of the most memorable have something special to offer in DVD versions newly out from Warner Bros.

The biggest news is that "Once Upon a Time in America," Sergio Leone's magnificent gangster epic starring Robert De Niro, James Woods and Elizabeth McGovern, is now available with 22 minutes of footage that was never previously released.

There is no new footage available for David O. Selznick's renowned "Gone With the Wind," but that eternally popular film is celebrating its 75th anniversary, and that is reason enough for a new edition with an entire disc of new features. You can watch it all … tomorrow.
