The shoot of “Gone with the Wind” is turning into a real disaster. Legendary producer, David O. Selznick, has shut it down for a rework to make sure the movie turns out just as he always imagined, but the clock is ticking, and every second off set costs an absolute fortune.
Accompanied by his sharp, unerring secretary, Miss Poppenghul, he decides to bring in two heavy-hitters to sort out the problem: his great friend and hot-shot scriptwriter, Ben Hecht and the talented and yet notoriously difficult director, Victor Fleming.
However, neither was expecting this American Civil War melodrama, starring a conceited, immodest heroine like Scarlett O’Hara. Both try to talk him out of it continuously, but they won’t succeed. The producer is obsessed with Scarlett’s character and like her, he won’t stop until he gets what he wants. And just like her, he’ll get his own way, no matter what.
Everyone knows that the movie was eventually made and became one of the biggest hits in the history of cinema, but only we know what really happened during the shoot. A fascinating story about the golden age of Hollywood in the 1930s. Lights, camera, action!
