Susan Myrick
Birth: Feb. 20, 1893
Milledgeville
Baldwin County
Georgia, USA
Death: Sep. 3, 1978
Macon
Bibb County
Georgia, USA

Author, Newspaper Columnist. As producer David O. Selznick began his work on the movie "Gone With The Wind," its author Margaret Mitchell made only one request. She recommended Susan Myrick to be the film's technical advisor. Myrick, known as "The Emily Post of the South," was not only the dialect coach for all the actors (both black and white), she was also in charge of seeing that the costumes and customs were consistant with Southern tradition. (A whole scene was reshot when Myrick told Selzick that "a young lady would never have worn that dress showing her bosom at that time of day.") Myrick wrote the book "White Columns in Hollywood: Reports from the GWTW Sets." For her work with the Macon Telegraph, she was inducted into the Georgia Newspaper Hall of Fame in 1984. (bio by: Evening Blues)
