Publisher's Summary

Once upon a time, Margaret Mitchell wrote a book...and the rest was historic.

Irving Thalberg once said, "No Civil War picture ever made a nickel." Producer David O. Selznick was determined to prove that assumption wrong, even if it killed him, his stars, and all three of his directors; even if it cost him his independent movie studio and destroyed every relationship he'd ever had. This is a story of old Hollywood and of a world that no longer exists. Gone with the Wind broke new ground in every avenue of Hollywood's old empire. It made an international star out of Vivien Leigh, won an unprecedented 10 Academy Awards, and in 1939 was the most expensive motion picture ever made. But it was one crisis after another from the time the motion picture rights were purchased in 1936, until shooting began in 1938. The story of how this film ever got made is almost as epic as the movie itself.

Upon completion of Gone with the Wind, Selznick was sure that he had hit the jackpot. But he also knew that every film he made from that time on would be judged on the merit of what the worldwide audience called Selznick's Folly. This is a fictional account on the making of the greatest motion picture ever made!
