David O. Selznick, famed Hollywood producer, has a crisis. He’s three weeks into shooting his latest epic, Gone With the Wind, but the script just isn’t working. His solution? Fire the director, pull Victor Fleming off The Wizard of Oz, and lock himself, Fleming and scrip doctor Ben Hecht in his office for 5 days until they have a screenplay that works.
