Samuel Goldwyn Quotes

1882 -- 1974

Founder Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer

One of the most eminent of the old Hollywood film moguls, Samuel  Goldfish arrived in America in 1893 without a penny to his name. Goldfish went into partnership with Edgar Selwyn in a company whose name took the first syllable of Goldfish's name and the last one of Selwyn's  --  Goldwyn.    Samuel Goldfish   adopted and a legend was born.  He was also notorious for his misuses of the language. But he also had quite the sharp wit. Sometimes his wit is mistaken for verbal flub, while other times a verbal flub is the only conceivable explanation. Either way, this collection of quotations is hilarious.
