The majority of motion pictures start off as books. When Margaret Mitchell wrote her Civil War classic Gone With The Wind, she had no idea that Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh would be uttering the words that she wrote in their 1936, War Between The States epic movie Gone With The Wind.

When L. Frank Baum wrote the Wizard of Oz he never envisioned that one day there would be dozens of little dwarfs portraying the munchkins.

Mr. Baum certainly never dreamed that these little adult guys and gals would end up drinking on the movie set a bit too much between scenes and get severely reprimanded by the movie executives.

And Peter Benchley, the author who wrote Jaws, probably never envisioned that three very expensive mechanical sharks would play the part of the Great White Shark in his book.

The motion picture group known as The Ticket Stub Federation Council now presents the other side of the motion picture coin.
