Gone With the Wind

ParkerWhat do the following authors all have in common?

    • Dorothy Parker
    • F. Scott Fitzgerald
    • Raymond Chandler
    • William Faulkner
    • John Steinbeck
    • Evan Hunter
    • Stephen King
    • Larry McMurtry
    • Dave Eggers
    • Nick Hornsby

Yes, they have all gone to Hollywood and written for the movies. I ran across this historical document online which shows some of the decision making that was behind selecting the writers that would convert Margaret Mitchell’s Gone With the Wind onto the 1939 award winning movie.
