Gone With the Wind was one of the most-beloved books and films of the 20th century, but how did the book become the movie? In Moonlight & Magnolias, Ron Hutchinson shows us what happens when you lock three of the most driven men in Hollywood in an office for five days. Coming in February 2013.
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? While fending off the film's stars, gossip columnists, and his own father-in-law, Selznick sends a car for famed screenwriter Ben Hecht and pulls 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 the three men labor to fashion a screenplay that will become the blueprint for one of the most successful and beloved films of all time. Leave those winter doldrums at the door! Join OCTA for this farce that the New York Daily News termed "Frankly, my dear, this is one funny play…a rip-roaring farce…[with] witty, pointed dialogue and hilarious situations…."
