The screenplay, you see, just doesn’t work. So, while fending off the film’s stars, gossip columnists and his own father-in-law Louis B. Mayer, Selznick sends a car for famed screenwriter Ben Hecht and pulls formidable director Victor Fleming off The Wizard of Oz. Summoning both to his office, he locks the doors, closes the shades, and on a diet of bananas and peanuts, crafts in five days a screenplay for perhaps the most successful and beloved film of all time, Gone with the Wind.
