Moonlight and Magnolias
By Rob Hutchinson
Directed by Jennifer Uphoff Gray
1939 Hollywood is abuzz. Legendary producer David O. Selznick has shut down production of his new epic, Gone With the Wind, dissatisfied with the adaptation of Margaret Mitchell's 800-page book. In desperation he locks himself in his office with screenwriter Ben Hecht and director Victor Fleming, determined to fix the script. Subsisting only on peanuts and bananas, the three men struggle to fashion a screenplay for one of the most beloved stories of all time ‑ without losing their minds.
