A little gem of movie
24 September 2001 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

The search for the actress to play Scarlett O'Hara in Gone With the Wind was a national phenomenon. This TV movie gives a marvelously entertaining depiction of that search. Casting of the stars is very clever, using both well known TV stars as well as unknowns in the various roles. Sharon Gless and Carrie Nye are wonderfully funny as Carole Lombard and Tallulah Bankhead, Barrie Youngfellow shines as Joan Crawford, and Tony Curtis makes an admirable David O. Selznick. Casting Morgan Brittany as Vivien Leigh and having her appear only at the very end of the film for maximum effect was inspired. An excellent slice of Hollywood lore.
