From Wikipedia

Samuel Goldwyn (born Szmul Gelbfisz ; c. July 1879 - January

31, 1974), also known as Samuel Goldfish, was a Polish American film producer.

He was most well known for being the founding contributor and executive of

several motion picture studios in Hollywood.

In 1916, Goldwyn partnered with Broadway producers Edgar and

Archibald Selwyn, using a combination of both names to call their movie-making

enterprise Goldwyn Pictures. Seeing an opportunity, Samuel Gelbfisz then had

his name legally changed to Samuel Goldwyn, which he used for the rest of his

life. Goldwyn Pictures proved successful but it is their "Leo the

Lion" trademark for which the organization is most famous.

On April 10, 1924, Goldwyn Pictures was acquired by Marcus

Loew and merged into his Metro Pictures Corporation. Despite the inclusion of

his name, Goldwyn had no role in the management or production at

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.

Before the sale and merger of Goldwyn Pictures in April

1924, Goldwyn had established Samuel Goldwyn Productions in 1923 as a

production-only operation (with no distribution arm). Their first feature was

Potash and Perlmutter, released in September 1923 through First National

Pictures. Some of the early productions bear the name "Howard

Productions", named for Goldwyn's wife Frances Howard.

For 35 years, Goldwyn built a reputation in filmmaking and

developed an eye for finding the talent for making films. William Wyler

directed many of his most celebrated productions, and he hired writers such as

Ben Hecht, Sidney Howard, Dorothy Parker, and Lillian Hellman. (According to

legend, at a heated story conference Goldwyn scolded someoneâ??in most accounts

Mrs. Parker, who recalled he had once been a glove makerâ??with the retort:

"Don't you point that finger at me. I knew it when it had a thimble on

it!" During that time, Goldwyn made numerous films and reigned as

the most successful independent producer in the US. Many of his films were

forgettable; his collaboration with John Ford, however, resulted in Best

Picture Oscar nomination for Arrowsmith (1931). William Wyler was responsible

for most of Goldwyn's highly lauded films, with Best Picture Oscar nominations

for Dodsworth (1936), Dead End (1937), Wuthering Heights (1939), The Little

Foxes (1941) and The Best Years of Our Lives (1948). The leading actors in

several of Goldwyn films, especially those directed by William Wyler, were also

Oscar-nominated for their performances.

Throughout the 1930s, Goldwyn released all his films through

United Artists, but beginning in 1941, and continuing almost through the end of

his career, Goldwyn released his films through RKO Radio Pictures.

Goldwyn died at his home in Los Angeles in 1974 from natural

causes, at the probable age of 94. He was interred in the Forest Lawn Memorial

Park Cemetery in Glendale, California. In the 1980s, Samuel Goldwyn Studio was

sold to Warner Bros.. There is a theater named after him in Beverly Hills and

he has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 1631 Vine Street.
