Brooke Wheeler, son of Art Direction Oscar winner Lyle Wheeler will introduce the documentary made by Daniel Selznick, son of Producer David Selznick whose vision was the guiding light of the making of GWTW. The documentary we will screen was made for the 50th anniversary of GWTW at a time when most of the stars and people behind the scenes were still alive to be interviewed. It was a fascinating, frustrating process creating one of the longest films ever commercially screened (at 233 minutes) and after converting to today's dollars, the highest grossing film ever made.

The site's anthropological layers unearth changes each Era has brought to one small Mexican Rancho. In the early 19th Century our focus narrows to an artistic and social mecca -- a single Hacienda built on former Rancho land -- the residence of a series of "Old Hollywood" Legends; designed by John Byers, built in the 1920s by one of Edison’s Three Tenors - Jose Mojica’s Music Salon is the site of our chamber music; the 1930-40's brought the Hacienda Anita Loos' eclectic Santa Monica Canyon Salons; then Lyle Wheeler (David Selznick's Art Director) made the hacienda his home. The over 600 films produced by these three former residents are screened in our 50-seat theater
