DescriptionA Margaret Mitchell File Copy Letter Discussing the Film, 1936. From the author's own files, two pages, typed, dated "October 6, 1936," addressed to "Miss Brown" [Hollywood talent scout and agent, Katharine "Kay" Brown, who brought "GWTW" to David O. Selznick's attention], six paragraphs outlining Mitchell's concerns and frustrations due to her sudden fame and to her selling of the movie rights, paragraph three reads in part "Life has been awful since I sold the movie rights! / I am deluged with letters demanding that I do not put Clark Gable in as / Rhett. Strangers telephone me or grab me on the street, insisting that / Kathaine Hepburn will never do," Mitchell also mentions wanting to meet George Cukor and wanting to set him up with Wilbur Kurtz in Atlanta -- overall, an interesting early letter before production got off the ground. And who didn't want Gable to play "Rhett?"
