Biographical Sketch

David O. Selznick (1902-1965) began his film career working for his father's production companies. In 1926 he joined MGM as a reader and quickly rose to assistant producer. Two years later, Selznick left MGM to become executive assistant at Paramount. In 1931 he moved to RKO as vice president in charge of production. He returned to MGM in 1933 and there produced such films as Dinner at Eight (1933), David Copperfield (1935), Anna Karenina (1935), and A Tale of Two Cities (1935).
Selznick, in partnership with John Hay ("Jock") Whitney, formed his first independent film production company, Selznick International Pictures (SIP), in 1935. Movies produced under the SIP aegis include A Star is Born (1937), The Prisoner of Zenda (1937), Nothing Sacred (1937), The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1938), and Gone With the Wind (1939). Selznick was responsible for bringing the Swedish actress, Ingrid Bergman, and the British director, Alfred Hitchcock, to Hollywood. Hitchcock directed Rebecca (1940), Spellbound (1945), and Notorious (1946) while under contract to Selznick.
Selznick began liquidation of Selznick International Pictures in 1940 for tax reasons, but reorganized and continued producing films as an independent. He also supported his enterprise by selling developed projects and loaning out his contract stars to other studios. In 1946, Selznick created his own distribution company, Selznick Releasing Organization (SRO). He entered into European coproduction beginning with The Third Man (1950), and he produced a live television special celebrating the 60th anniversary of electricity, Light's Diamond Jubilee, in 1954. A Farewell to Arms (1957) marked the last film Selznick personally produced, though he continued to keep an active interest in the film business until his death in 1965.
David O. Selznick was the son of pioneer film producer Lewis J. Selznick and the brother of Hollywood talent agent Myron Selznick. He married Irene Gladys Mayer, the daughter of MGM head Louis B. Mayer, in 1930. In 1949, after his first marriage had ended in divorce, Selznick married Jennifer Jones, an actress who starred in several of his productions including Duel in the Sun (1946) and Portrait of Jennie (1948). Selznick had two sons by his first marriage, Lewis Jeffrey (1932- ) and Daniel Mayer (1936- ), and one daughter by his second marriage, Mary Jennifer (1954-1976).

Organization and Access

In the mid 1950s, Selznick made the decision to store his voluminous inactive files at the Bekins Storage Company. Periodically thereafter, the files were boxed for shipment in the order they were removed from the file cabinets, department by department, and an inventory list was maintained.
This inventory list (hereafter referred to as the Bekins list) was used during cataloging to reconstruct the physical order in which the files were retired. A copy of the Bekins storage list is available to researchers. This list can aid the understanding of the current physical arrangement of the materials, and at times provide additional information about the materials.
The processed boxes and folders were described in 14,498 catalog records. Series and file group names were added to each of these records in order to facilitate access to the original departmental or creator groupings of the materials. Thus, while the physical arrangement of the collection does not necessarily always reflect the intellectual arrangement by series, the catalog records provide the means to search for related materials that are physically scattered and view them in a selected order.
The catalog records were previously available in the University’s online library catalog, UTCAT or UTNetCat, the World Wide Web version of UTCAT. The records are now available in a separate Selznick Collection Database. The data remains the same and is searchable by any field or combination of fields. Search results may then be sorted by any of the fields. The information contained in a typical record is as follows:
Call number:  184 11, the current box number followed by the relevant folder number.
Series:  ADMINISTRATIVE: Name of series.
File creator:  SELZNICK, DAVID O., 1902-1965. Person within the organization who created and/or maintained the records described in the title.
File title & description:  PRODUCTION FILES, type of material contained in the box; 1936 - 1942, date span for this box and related files or boxes; GONE WITH THE WIND FIRE SEQUENCE, file name or description of contents of the specific folder.
File year/span:  1939, date specific to this file.
BK number:  BK359, the box number in which the file was originally stored. BK codes used include:
BK# -- The main studio inventory of retired files (Bekins list). BK* indicates that the Bekins number is unknown.
LN# -- Files shipped from the London office.
FC# -- Represents files active at the time of Selznick's death and shipped in file cabinets for storage at Bekins. Also includes files not inventoried on the main Bekins list (e.g., New York files, legal files).
DN -- Additions to the collection after 1981, the year the bulk of the material was received by the Ransom Center.

Scope and Contents

Scope and Contents

The David O. Selznick Collection contains records documenting every aspect of his Hollywood studio operations including script development, production, publicity, finances, and distribution. The major part of the records span the years 1916 to 1966 which correspond to film's pioneer days in New York through the heyday of the studio system in Hollywood, to the rise of television. Selznick was employed at three major studios, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM), Paramount, and RKO. As an independent, his credits include A Star Is Born (1937), Gone With the Wind (1939), and Rebecca (1940). Selznick played out his activities against the backdrop of censorship under the Hays Office, the hardship of the Depression, the impact of World War II, and the paranoia of America's "red scare." The collection covers the years from 1904 to 1980 with most of the material dating from the mid 1930s through the mid 1950s.
The records are arranged in thirteen series based on the departmental division of the studio: Administrative, Casting, Distribution, Financial, Legal, Lewis J. Selznick (LJS), London, Music, Production, Publicity, Research, Story, Talent, and a fourteenth series, Gifts, that includes materials donated by Selznick's family. The physical order of the records was disturbed over the years and the present arrangement is an attempt to restore the materials to the original order as represented by the inventory list (Bekins list) that came with the collection.
The collection comprises all the types of materials one would expect to be generated by a film studio, including appointment books, audio recordings, awards, balance sheets, call sheets, clippings, correspondence, journal vouchers, ledgers, memos, minutes, music, notebooks, photographic prints and negatives, posters, props, realia, scrapbooks, scripts, set and costume designs, story boards, and telegrams. Through analysis of the above materials, one can trace the evolution of a film such as Gone With the Wind from story purchase through script development, casting, design, production, exploitation, distribution, and reissue. Though most of the material represents Selznick's independent career, there are also records from his father's companies, from his employment at the RKO, Paramount, and MGM studios, and materials concerning his personal affairs. There is documentation not only of the movies Selznick produced outright, but also of those he developed and sold, as well as those never realized.
The collection touches on virtually every major Hollywood person, studio, and event of Selznick's day. Persons represented in the collection include, but are not limited to:
  • Writers, including Truman Capote, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Gene Fowler, Oliver H. P. Garrett, Graham Greene, Ben Hecht, Sidney Howard, Aldous Huxley, Ring Lardner, Jr., Dorothy Parker, Robert E. Sherwood, Budd Schulberg, Peter Viertel, and Hugh Walpole;
  • Musicians, including Bernard Herrmann, Oscar Levant, Miklos Rozsa, Max Steiner, Dimitri Tiomkin, and Franz Waxman;
  • Producers, including Samuel Goldwyn, Mark Hellinger, Alexander Korda, and Louis B. Mayer; directors Frank Capra, George Cukor, Vittorio De Sica, Victor Fleming, John Ford, Alfred Hitchcock, John Huston, Carol Reed, King Vidor and William A. Wellman;
  • Actors, including Ethel, John, and Lionel Barrymore, Ingrid Bergman, Charles Boyer, Montgomery Clift, Claudette Colbert, Ronald Colman, Joseph Cotten, Olivia de Havilland, Marlene Dietrich, Joan Fontaine, Clark Gable, Greta Garbo, Janet Gaynor, Lillian Gish, Cary Grant, Leslie Howard, Rock Hudson, Jennifer Jones, Louis Jourdan, Vivien Leigh, Carole Lombard, Myrna Loy, Fredric March, Hattie McDaniel, Dorothy McGuire, Laurence Olivier, Gregory Peck, Basil Rathbone, Ginger Rogers, Shirley Temple, Alida Valli, and Orson Welles.
