New York - November 15, 2012 - AMC kicks off Thanksgiving weekend with an impressive lineup of original series and film favorites, from programming events celebrating such revered films as Gone with the Wind and The Godfather to marathons and new episodes of the network's hit original series "The Walking Dead" and "Hell on Wheels."

The following is a closer look at AMC's programming slate for Thanksgiving weekend, beginning Wednesday, November 23 through Sunday, November 27:

"AMC CELEBRATES" GONE WITH THE WIND

On Wednesday, November 23, AMC dedicates its air to the celebrated American classic, Gone with the Wind, with airings at 9am, 2pm, 7pm and midnight, marking the 75th anniversary of the celebrated novel. Gone with the Wind stars Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable who carry on a turbulent love affair in the American south during the Civil War and Reconstruction.

"THANKSGIVING WITH YOUR GODFATHER"

The exclusive basic cable home of The Godfather trilogy, AMC airs two award-winning films back-to-back on Thanksgiving Day.

In The Godfather, director Francis Ford Coppola paints a chilling portrait of the Sicilian clan's rise and near fall from power in America. Based on Mario Puzo's best-selling novel, the film garnered three Academy Award(R) wins, including Best Picture of 1972. The Godfather II is a brilliant companion piece to the original that continues the saga of two generations of successive power within the Corleone family. The film received six Academy Awards(R), including Best Picture of 1974.
