Amana – “Who’s not familiar with Margaret Mitchell’s Gone With the Wind? One of the screenwriters of the play, that’s who! Moonlight and Magnolias is the hilarious behind-the-scenes account of three men who spent a weekend locked in an office rewriting the screenplay for the movie, Gone With the Wind, while the cameras were already rolling. See what “really” happened as the producer and director act out key scenes for the screenwriter for what eventually became one of the greatest movies ever made.
