Those Patrons with Allergies

An Overview of Moonlight and Magnolias
1939 Hollywood is abuzz. Legendary producer David O. Selznick (Mark Troillett) has shut down production of his new epic, Gone with the Wind, a film adaptation of Margaret Mitchell’s novel. The screenplay, you see, just doesn’t work. So what’s an all-powerful movie mogul to do? While fending off the film’s stars, gossip columnists and his own father-in-law, Selznick sends a car for famed screenwriter Ben Hecht (Danny Troillett) and pulls formidable director Victor Fleming (Tom Crone) from the set of The Wizard of Oz. Summoning both to his office, he locks the doors, closes the shades, and on a diet of bananas and peanuts, the three men labor over five days to fashion a screenplay that will become the blueprint of one of the most successful and beloved films of all time.
