Gwtw Dream Team ? Hah!

August 17, 1986

Re the possibility of a sequel to "Gone With the Wind" (Outtakes, Aug. 10)--please, please, Richard Zanuck and David Brown, those Hollywood producers who are in control of such a sequel, choose a handsome and sexy actor to play Rhett Butler! When I read that they consider Jack Nicholson to be the "dream" Rhett, I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. We women deserve to have Rhett played by a devastatingly sexy guy--not someone who, though a fine actor, is balding and not handsome. My choice is Billy Dee Willams. Not only is he beautiful and intensely appealing, he's also a superior actor. The racial thing could just be ignored. He's the only one I can think of who could fill Rhett Butler's shoes.
