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. In this  peek into the back room of the Golden Age of Hollywood,  Selznick sends a car for famed screenwriter Ben Hecht and pulls formidable director Victor Fleming from the set of The Wizard of Oz.  Locked in a room for five days, these three race against the clock to produce one of the most successful and beloved films of all time.

Featuring:  Thom Sinn as David O. Selznick;  David Shoemaker as Ben Hecht;  Tony Calevido as Victor Fleming; and Rachel Roth as Miss Poppenghul
