Mayer Productions merged to become Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Ironically, Samuel Goldwyn had been forced to relinquish ownership of Goldwyn Pictures in 1922, and was never a part of the company that bore his name. He was an independent producer when he borrowed $147,611.59 from Twentieth Century Pictures in 1933. Earlier that year, Joseph Schenck, the president of United Artists, co-founded Twentieth Century Pictures with Darryl F. Zanuck, former head of production at the Warner Bros. studio. Twentieth Century Pictures was organized in April 1933 and signed a distribution deal with United Artists in July 1933.
