ABOUT THE PRODUCER
The legendary producer, David O. Selznick, produced two films

working first at RKO, then at MGM, and in 1936 he formed Selznick
Selznick's other works include: VIVA VILLA, DAVID COPPERFIELD, A
TALE OF TWO CITIES, A STAR IS BORN, THE PRISONER OF ZENDA, INTERMEZZO,
DUEL IN THE SUN, and A FAREWELL TO ARMS.
NOTES & TRIVA
Produced during the depression, the film cost less than $4 million.
Some consider it the greatest movie ever made, others consider it
the greatest example of storytelling on film, one thing is true...
it is the most popular film in history.
The public demanded Clark Gable as Rhett Butler; but the nation-wide
search for Scarlett went on for months, captivating everyone's interest.
Memorable music by Max Steiner.
It earned 8 Oscars-a record, until Ben Hur got 11 Oscars in 1959.
