    Hollywood is abuzz. David O.Selznick, a film producer, has spent five weeks shooting "Gone With the Wind". He decides the script is terrible and realizes the director is clueless, The screenplay, you see, just doesn’t work. So what’s an all-powerful movie mogul to do? While fending off the film’s stars, gossip columnists, and his own father-in-law, Selznick sends a car for famed screenwriter Ben Hecht and pulls formidable director Victor Fleming from the set of The Wizard of Oz. Unfortunately, it turns out that Hecht hasn't read the book yet! Frantically, the three men spend five days rewriting one of the most beloved screenplays of all time.

Reconstructed, St. Francis Xavier Church was raised once again in 1899 as the first brick church in Alexandria. Holding the state’s largest and most beautiful stained-glass windows and a hand-carved, walnut alter, St. Francis Xavier Church is beyond gorgeous inside and out.
