Samuel Goldwyn (1879-1974) was a pioneering film producer and a founding figure in Hollywood. Born Szmuel Gelbfisz in Warsaw, Poland, he emigrated to the United States in 1899. Goldwyn co-founded several major studios, including Paramount Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM). His independent production company, Samuel Goldwyn Productions, became renowned for high-quality films. Goldwyn produced many classic movies, such as “Wuthering Heights” (1939) and “The Best Years of Our Lives” (1946), which won multiple Academy Awards. Known for his keen business acumen and memorable malapropisms, Goldwyn left an indelible mark on the American film industry.
