    Gone With The Wind Script Sides (MGM, 1939). (6) Six Pages (8.5" X 11"). In 1936 Producer David O. Selznick began testing actresses for the most coveted role in Hollywood history, the part of Scarlett O'Hara in "Gone With the Wind." It would become the most celebrated talent search in the history of films and the largest publicity push for a film in the planning as every major and minor actress in Hollywood and beyond was considered for the role. Enter Margery Timm, a young actress who had gone to Hollywood in the early thirties hoping to break into the film industry as an actress. She had a number of uncredited bit parts in some of the bigger mainstream films from the thirties as well as "Gone With the Wind"itself. She read for the role of Scarlett in Hollywood, though the exact location is not known but what has survived are her script sides from that audition. Offered in this lot are six typewritten and carbon copied pages of the script from "Gone With the Wind." The cover page is dated November 27, 1937. It is titled "Reading or Test Scene- Rhett and Scarlett, Jail Scene." The scenes are numbered 361 through 363 and the pages are numbered 172 through 176. This is a rare opportunity to be able to own a piece of Hollywood history with these pages from the Seznick Studios reading for perhaps the most famous film ever made. Fine.
