Sue's life from plantation through her teaching and newspaper careers and 6 months in Hollywood telling David Selznick how to properly portray the South, from accents to agriculture.

Sue Myrick, country born, grew up to become the leader of society in Macon, GA. She met and became best friends with Margaret Mitchell, who strongly recommended her to David Selznick to help with Southern customs and accents for Gone With The Wind. The book is based on her own writings--letters to Mitchell, her diary kept while preparing to go and while in Hollywood, and her newspaper columns. She wrote for The Macon Telegraph for 50 yuears, winning numerous awards for her work. She was invited to the White House with other outstanding newspaper women.

This hardback is available on order from bookstores or from the author at P. O. Box 33536, Decatur, GA 30033.  Cost, 29.95 + $5.00 S & H. (It weights almost 2 pounds!)

Excerpt
The debate (between Sue Myrick and David Selznick) over a cotton chopping scene began in January 1939 when Selznick asked Sue to look at a field to see if it would be appropriate to use as a cotton field. He wanted slaves to be chopping cotton when Gerald O'Hara rode over Tara on the day before the barbecue at Twleve Oaks--the day The War Between The States began, in Mid-April. Sue argued with Selznick for months--you do not chop cotton in North Georgia in April, she told him, over and over...until June 1939, before he finally relented and did not include the mid-april cotton copping scene.
