1939 Hollywood is abuzz. Legendary producer David O. Selznick has shut down production of his new epic Gone with the Wind. The screenplay , you see, just doesn’t work. So what’s an all- powerful movie mogul to do? Selznick sends a car for famed screenwriter Ben Hecht and pull formidable director Victor Fleming from the set of The Wizard of Oz. Summoning both to his office, he locks the doors, closes the shades, and on a diet of bananas and peanuts, the three men labor for 5 days to create a screenplay that will become one of the most successful films of the 20th century. A delightful comedy with plenty of insider fun and games.
