September 9 - Samuel Goldwyn and MGM
Who doesn’t love the movies? We will look at one of the legendary studios – Metro Goldwyn Mayer – and its helmsman, Sam Goldwyn. Born in Poland, he came to America to make his fortune, and the rest is Hollywood history. Not only did Goldwyn make great movies, his studio made great movie stars. Even his failures were spectacular. This up-close-and-personal look at MGM and Goldwyn will entertain you, even without the popcorn.
