    Ouch! An UNcomfortable moment in Hollywood History… One couldn’t say Cukor’s career suffered tho’, really. Silver linings… 🙂

    • Cukor, the first director on the job was known for taking time with the actors and he was called a “woman’s director”. Selznick didn’t think he could handle the sweep of the action sequences so he brought in Victor Fleming (another great director) who was friends with Clark Gable, but Vivien had trouble adjusting to him.
