    I have this original hand typed document from the office of Russell Birdwell regarding the production of Gone With The Wind. I have not been able to find this particular document anywhere. I am trying to assess if it is rare. It was owned by an actress from my hometown that was an extra (prostitute I think) in the movie. It's about 10 pages and unfortunately at least the last page is missing. No signatures, but the actress did write notes about her scene in the margins. Also while I know she was in the movie, I would love to validate it somewhere but cant seem to find a site that includes listing all extras for the movie. Thank you so much for any help.

      Gone with the Wind has a large collector following and items related to the movie can bring good money-- especially items in the movie or used in the production.

      I am not a GWTW collector, but what I see is a history of the production that was compiled later. The ball point notations also suggest the item is a later item.
      Notation on that scene would seem to indicate the woman was an "extra" one of thousands in a large scene and therefore not given any film credit.

      Assuming the item is much later than the move and incomplete/ not signed, I wouldn't think that this item was particularly rare or valuable.

      To be safe, I'd check with a GWTW collector (or movie/ film collector) and see what kind of response you get. They may be able to shed some light on the actress as well.

      Good luck!
