DAVID GREENE, Host:

VIVIEN LEIGH: (as Scarlett O'Hara) If I have to lie, steal, cheat or kill, as God is my witness, I'll never be hungry again.
GREENE: Culver has also been the set for TV shows like "Lassie," more recently "Scrubs" and also "America's Next Top Model." Over its 93-year history, Culver Studios has been owned by some legends, like Howard Hughes and Lucille Ball. It's currently owned by private investors, and they are hoping to get $150 million for this sprawling piece of Hollywood history. And that wraps up the business news here on MORNING EDITION, from NPR News. I'm David Greene.
