It was one part talent search, one part publicity stunt, and one part logistical nightmare. In 1936, David O. Selznick sent his troops throughout the South to search for a fresh-faced new talent to play Scarlett O'Hara in his upcoming blockbuster, “Gone With The Wind”. The team traveled to colleges, small town little theatres, and debutant societies. They were counting on some good press, they were counting on winning southern support for their film adaption of the revered Margaret Mitchell novel, but they weren't counting on the girls of Gideon, Georgia. When these Scarlett wannabes figure out that it's all just a publicity stunt, they take the Selznick team hostage. As the girls fight for the chance at a Hollywood screen test, they unveil some dark secrets. When it comes to back-stabbing, conniving and winning at all costs, these girls give Hollywood a run for its money.
