Moonlight and Magnolias

By: Ron Hutchinson

Show Description:
Five weeks into shooting, MGM's epic Civil War film Gone with the Wind was headed toward an epic failure. Fearing critical and financial disaster, producer David O. Selznick called up director Victor Fleming from the set of The Wizard of Oz to replace the original clueless director, and called in"script doctor" Ben Hecht to rewrite the awful original script. But Hecht hadn't ever read Margaret Mitchell's sprawling, thousand-page novel! Over the course of just five days, the three men and Selznick's assistant, Miss Poppenghul, frantically act out the book in Selznick's office and craft what was to become a legendary script.
