Gone with the Wind was based on Margaret Mitchell’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and the film’s completion was miraculous in itself. It took 140 days, 5 directors, and 13 writers—including F. Scott Fitzgerald—to bring it to the big screen. Producer David O. Selznick initially balked at the $50,000 movie rights to the book and fretted that Civil War movies always bombed at the box office. Almost every role in the film involved lengthy searches and costly negotiations for just the right performers.
