Moonlight and Magnolias

Written By: Ron Hutchinson Directed By: Pete Dzanbozoff
1939 Hollywood is abuzz! Legendary producer David O. Selznick has shut down the filming of his newest epic, Gone with the Wind, just three weeks into production. The screenplay just isn’t working. So what’s an all-powerful movie mogul to do? Fire the director, pull Victor Fleming off The Wizard of Oz, and lock himself, Fleming, and script doctor Ben Hecht in his office until they have a script. Subsisting on a diet of bananas and peanuts, they spend five days working through and acting out Margaret Mitchell’s bestseller and in the process make movie history by fashioning a screenplay for one of the most successful and beloved films of all time. Inspired by true events, Moonlight and Magnolias is a wildly funny and winning story that illuminates the behind-the-scenes business of movie- making — and the larger-than-life egos — during the golden age of Hollywood.
