It's epic in scale, and the love/hate story between Clark Gabel and Vivein Leigh's characters is perfectly done.
I don't know - when I finally sat down to watch that film after years of seeing bits of it here and there I felt like the story was rushed. Which makes sense seeing as how they condensed an epic novel into 3 1/2 hours of film.
Anyway, one more I consider a classic from the 70s is the Gene Wilder version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Great music, great fun. The kids all fit their roles well, and it takes a good deal of Roald Dahl's creepiness out of the story
