From Kirkus Reviews:

Harmetz, who has previously chronicled the making of The Wizard of Oz and Casablanca, now turns to the Great American Movie: Gone With the Wind. With access to previously unpublished materials in David Selznick's private archives, she relates the film's history, from the endless revision of the script to the battle with the censors--not only over Rhett Butler's use of the word ``damn,'' but the less well known fight over the word ``niggers,'' which is used in the book but not in the movie. Heavily illustrated, the volume includes scene sketches for Tara and the burning of Atlanta, costume sketches, makeup stills, and more. (Abrams; $39.95; Nov.; 224 pages; ISBN 0-8109-3684-4; Book-of-the-Month Club selection) -- Copyright ©1996, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
