SAMUEL GOLDWYN. Document signed: "Samuel Goldwyn", 1p, 8½x11. No place, 1949 December 21. Goldwyn signs his acceptance of a documentary letter from Samuel Goldwyn Productions, Inc. arranged for the continued employment of persons requested by the corporation and continued occupancy of a property. In 1917, Polish-born Samuel Goldfish (1879-1974), who had emigrated on foot across Europe and risen from abject poverty went into partnership with Edgar Selwyn in a company called the Goldwyn Pictures Corp., its name a fusion of the partner's names. (Goldfish himself soon adopted Goldwyn as his own legal name). Goldwyn lost control of the company before it merged with two other studios to become MGM, but Goldwyn continued to thrive as a powerful independent producer. "Lone wolf" Goldwyn's films, usually of high quality, included such titles as Street Scene (1931), Stella Dallas (1937), The Pride of the Yankees (1942), The Best Years of Our Lives (1946) and Guys and Dolls (1955).
