SANTA ROSA, CA. ~ Classic Hollywood comes to The Studio Theatre at 6th Street Playhouse on February 1 when Moonlight and Magnolias explores how the iconic film, Gone with the Wind came to be. Loaded with slap- stick humor and insider stories from Hollywood’s Golden Age, Moonlight and Magnolias is a must-see for fans of the film or vintage Hollywood.
Set in 1939, production has
just been shut down on the film adaptation of Margaret Mitchell’s classic novel. Movie mogul David O. Selznick is unhappy with the screenplay. While fend- ing 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. Summoning both to his office, he locks the doors, closes the shades, and on a diet of bananas and peanuts, the three men labor over five days to fashion a screenplay that will become the blueprint for one of the most successful and beloved films of all time. A major drawback to the plan is that Hecht has never read the novel so in order to bring Hecht up to speed, Selznick and Fleming must act out the story
Shun idleness. It is a rust that attaches itself to the most brilliant metals.

Insects are a useful source of protein in some parts of the world. Dried locusts are 75% protein and 20% fat, and contain several vitamins. Termites are 36% protein and 44% fat.
Worms, beetles, and bugs are not as American as Mom's apple pie, and very probably never will be. But there was an occasion in 1992, at the Explorers Club in New York City, when the New York Entomological Society celebrated its 100th anniversary with a banquet that began with snacks of roasted crickets and larvae and went on through meal worm ghanouj, wax worm fritters with plum sauce, cricket and vegetable tempura, and roasted Australian kurrajong grubs to roast beef and gravy. The dessert was chocolate cricket torte, the centerpieces on the table were live tarantulas (for decor, not for eating).
The record for eating live cockroaches is held by Ken Edwards of Derbyshire, England. In 2001 he ate 36 hissing Madagascar roaches in one minute.
A few fraternity brothers needed to fill a science requirement in order to graduate, so they spent weeks studying for the final. The day of the exam arrived and they were more than ready for the test. The teacher pulled out a chart, and on it were different pictures of bird's legs. The teacher said, "This is your exam. Name these birds by their legs."
After 10 minutes one boy stood up, absolutely furi- ous, and slammed the paper down on the teachers desk. "Geeez!!" he hollered. "You knew I needed to pass this exam to graduate. How could you do this to me?"
The guy begins to leave the room and the teacher yells at him, "Hey you, boy, what's your name?"
The student pulls up his pants, revealing his legs, and says, "I don't know sir. You tell me."
