Moonlight and Magnolias, directed by Eric R. Umali, is a hilarious comedy based on the writing of the screenplay for one of the greatest films of all time, Gone With the Wind.
Legendary film producer David O. Selznick has shut down production of his new epic “Gone With the Wind”. The screenplay just doesn’t work. So what’s an all-powerful movie mogul to do?
He calls director Victor Fleming from the set of “The Wizard of Oz” and taps legendary screen writer and “script doctor”, Ben Hecht, to rewrite the script. There is only one problem — Hecht hasn’t read the book.
Selznick locks the doors and pulls down the shades, and on a diet of bananas and peanuts the three men assisted by Selznick’s assistant, Miss Poppenghul, spend the next five days acting out and fashioning a screenplay that will become the blueprint for one of the most beloved films of all time. A comedy for the ages that you won’t want to miss!
