Looking for Scarlett

Gone with the Wind is a movie classic from 1939.This movie tells about that movie, or more about the troubles they had in finding the female lead.The Scarlett O'Hara War (1980) is a made for TV movie directed by John Erman.It's based on Garson Kanin's 1979 novel Moviola.The late great Tony Curtis does great work as David O. Selznick.Harold Gould, who actually died the same year and month as Tony did, is excellent as Louis B. Mayer.Bill Macy, who turns 90 next May, is terrific as Myron Selznick.Sharon Gless and Edward Winter are great as the Hollywood glamor couple Carole Lombard and Clark Gable.Very good work from George Furth, who plays George Cukor.Also great work from the actors playing women trying out for the role of Scarlett.Those are Barrie Youngfellow (Joan Crawford), Carrie Nye (Tallulah Bankhead) and Gwen Humble (Paulette Goddard).Clive Revill gives a great portrayal of Charlie Chaplin.Jane Kean is marvelous as Louella Parsons.Morgan Brittany is seen as Vivien Leigh.Also Melody Thomas Scott and Annie Potts are seen in the movie.This is a fascinating piece of history.I just saw from the DVD extras of Gone with the Wind about all the troubles they had in the making of that film, and especially finding the right Scarlett.This was actually one of the extras.With this movie you can dig deeper into the matter.
