Norma Shearer Gone With The Wind presentation script
A red leather bound presentation copy of the screenplay for Gone With The Wind with Shearer's name embossed in gold on the front cover. The presentation script is personally inscribed to Shearer by the film's producer, David O. Selznick, in blue ink reading in full, "for Norma - / the ever appreciative. / With gratitude for her / never - failing encouragement, / and with affection. / David / Xmas, 1939." Shearer famously turned down an offer from Selznick to play the much sought after role of Scarlet O'Hara. Shearer and her husband Irving Thalberg were however among a small group of financial backers who made it possible for Selznick to leave MGM in 1935 and form his own production company.
