What made Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer great was not its possessions but its people, the men and women who put together and starred in the motion pictures it produced -- and particularly the two men who created it all, Louis B. Mayer and Irving Thalberg.Rich with anecdotes and never-before told stories, Mayer and Thalberg, The Make Believe Saints is an eyewitness look at the way Hollywood really was in its golden years.Going behind the glamorous facade of Hollywood, Samuel Marx has written an in-depth profile of movies as an industry, the fascinating business of creating films, the deal making, the high finance, the heartbreak and hassle, the power and the politics.But more than an ingratiating portrait of a unique era, Mayer and Thalberg is the story of an extraordinary partnership -- the father-son relationship between Mayer and Thalberg -- from the day it began until Thalberg died, by which time the association had disintegrated into bitterness and rivalry.Marx, Samuel is the author of 'Mayer and Thalberg' with ISBN 9781893224308 and ISBN 1893224309.
