Gone With The Wind And Max Steiner - Poem by gershon hepner
Before he hired Vivien Leigh
and said he wished to have Clark Gable
star with her, David told Max he
must write what only he was able,
the score of his “Gone With the Wind, ”
a great choice those who’ve heard the score
once it was fully violined
agree. The movie more adore
than any other movie failed
to win awards from the Acad-
emy. Perhaps the winds had failed
to move the hearts that Clark made glad
and Vivien Leigh had thrilled in Tara;
its violins could surely not
have made Academicians para-
lyzed re Steiner, blasted hot.
David O. Selznick chose Max Steiner, composer of the score for “Casablanca, ” as the composer for music for “Gone With the Wind” before selecting Calrk Gable Gable and Vivien Leigh to be its stars. Max Steiner was the only major member of Selznick’s team who failed to win an Academy Award for his contribution.
Please note that my use of the penultimate word in this poem created a wordplay English speakers will appreciate better than people who speak American.
