Description

 It’s 1939 and Hollywood is abuzz. Legendary producer David Selznick shuts down production of his new epic, Gone with the Wind. Why? The screenplay just does not work. What’s an all-powerful movie mogul to do?

While fending off the film’s stars, gossip columnists and his own father in law, he sends for famed screenwriter Ben Hecht and pulls director Victor Fleming from the set of The Wizard of Oz. With both men in his office, he locks the doors and on a diet of bananas and peanuts, the 3 men labor to fashion the screenplay that will become one of the most beloved films of all time.
