Source: https://www.reddit.com/r/boxoffice/comments/444omb/gone_with_the_winds_reported_adjusted_domestic/ All credits go to /u/capdeporc2005, I'm merely linking to his post and encouraging discussion "I thought I'd verify GWTW's claim to being the domestic box office champ. As it's well known, its cume has been accumulated with several re-releases over many decades. Given how often this film is hailed as the all time great in terms of money making, it's surprising how little data there is documenting its performance. BOM for instance doesn't break down the domestic gross by each release, instead lumping most of the presumed receipts with the original 1939 release. And Guinness World Records reports that GWTW has adjusted lifetime global receipts of around $3.4B, but likewise doesn't bother to break it down. The only source offering a breakdown of the domestic receipts by release is IMDb, so I started from there. Year Reported domestic gross* Adjusted domestic gross (tickets sold)** Adjusted domestic gross (inflation)** 1939 (Initial release) $14,150,000 $518,628,261‡ $241,279,895 1941 (Re-release) $5,560,000 $187,483,200 $89,647,246 1942 (Re-release) $1,520,000 $47,457,778 $22,102,198 1947 (Re-release) $3,514,000 $74,057,550 $37,348,777 1954 (Re-release) $5,271,000 $98,743,400 $46,442,996 1961 (Re-release) $6,700,000 $81,856,522 $53,110,832 1967 (Re-release) $29,221,000 $205,277,525 $207,361,489 1974 (Re-release) $7,279,000 $32,813,888 $34,994,862 1989 (Re-release) $2,403,316 $5,103,263 $4,593,764 1998 (Re-release) $6,750,112 $12,132,931 $9,815,284 TOTAL $82,368,428 $1,263,554,317 $746,697,343 *The receipts figures for the years 1939, 1941, 1942, 1947, 1954, 1961, 1967 and 1974 are as reported on IMDb. The receipts figuresfor the years 1989 and 1998 are as reported on BOM. **The large discrepancy between gross adjusted for tickets sold and gross adjusted for inflation is due to the fact that increases in ticketprices over decades has outstripped inflation. For example, the average ticket price in 2015 was $8.43 while, adjusted for inflation, theaverage ticket price in 1939 was $3.92. ‡ This is an overestimation because the initial release of GWTW included much more expensive road show advance-tickets. IMDb also has alternative figures for GWTW's receipts in the years of 1939, 1941 and 1942 of $20M, $11M and $4M, respectively, but this is almost certainly wrong according to Wikipedia: Currently, BOM lists GWTW's adjusted lifetime domestic gross as ~$1.7B, based on unadjusted receipts of $189,523,031 supposedly earned before its 1989 re-release, but offers absolutely no breakdown of when these figures where earned, and even more troubling, possibly adjusts the entire total based on the value of the $US in 1939. I am almost certain that the adjusted lifetime domestic gross for GWTW is wrong given that no breakdown is given for the unadjusted total, and is probably based on unverified newspaper reports reprinted ad nauseam. It's likely that there's been much confusion regarding this film's domestic and global receipts and no one has ever bothered to set things straight. Star Wars' adjusted lifetime domestic total stands at about ~$1.5B and given its release date (38 years later thanGWTW), its figures are likely much more reliable. SW is likely the actual domestic champ." ---------- What do you think? I know that some of you guys broke down GWTW's gross, is it consistent with your numbers?
I am starting a new fresh thread, since I am planning to put a number of charts here in the first post.
