AaronB, you say, “There is no reason to work anymore – 3% of the work force is involved in essential services. The rest is bullshit work for superfluities.”
I take it you are the lucky recipient of regular welfare checks that save you from the need to engage in “bullshit work”. Presumably that frees up time for you to take part in LGBTQ festivities, participate in ‘peaceful’ and ‘progressive’ protests, and generally to admonish others to open their wallets and hearts to those who prefer to stay away from “bullshit work”.
The casting of the two lead roles became a complex, two-year endeavor. For the role of Rhett Butler, Selznick wanted Clark Gable from the start, but Gable was under contract to MGM, who never loaned him to other studios.  Gary Cooper was considered, but Samuel Goldwyn —to whom Cooper was under contract—refused to loan him out.  Warner offered a package of Bette Davis, Errol Flynn , and Olivia de Havilland for lead roles in return for the distribution rights.  By this time, Selznick was determined to get Gable and eventually struck a deal with MGM. Selznick's father-in-law, MGM chief Louis B. Mayer, offered in August 1938 to provide Gable and $1,250,000 for half of the film's budget but for a high price: Selznick would have to pay Gable's weekly salary, and half the profits would go to MGM while Loew's, Inc —MGM's parent company—would release the film.
