1939 Hollywood is abuzz. The screenplay for Gone With The Wind just doesn’t work. So what’s the all-powerful movie mogul David O. Selznickto do? While fending off the film’s stars and gossip columnists, Selznick sends a car for famed screenwriter Ben Hecht and pulls formidable director Victor Fleming from the set of The Wizard of Oz. He locks them both in his office, closes the shades, and on a diet of bananas and peanuts, the three men and a secretary hammer out a screenplay that will become one of the the most successful and beloved films of all time.
