9780767082754: Biography - Louis B. Mayer (A&E DVD Archives)

The movie mogul Louis B. Mayer emigrated as a child with his parents from Russia. He began his road to success when he purchased a house, refurbished it as a nickelodeon, and opened one of the earliest custom-designed cinemas. He established theaters throughout New England, which led him to Metro Films and the formation of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in 1924. He helped create the Hollywood star system and hatched the idea for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and his successes included The Big Parade, Ben-Hur, Grand Hotel, Dinner at Eight, the Andy Hardy series, and countless others.
