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


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.

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.
