David O. Selznick
Today is the anniversary of the death in 1965 of film producer David O. Selznick. PBS considers him one of the American Masters. FilmReference.com says, "he should be remembered as one of the Hollywood's greatest independent filmmakers."
Although best known for Gone With the Wind, he also produced Rebecca, The Third Man (uncredited) and A Star is Born (1937), all of which I like better than GWTW.
