Born in Warsaw, Poland, Samuel Goldwyn came to the United States at the age of 16 without a penny to his name. Within twenty years, he was one of most influential movie producers of his time.
He was the producer of over 125 films including:
Guys and Dolls with Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra
Wuthering Heights with Laurence Olivier and Merle Oberon
The Bishop’s Wife with Cary Grant and Loretta Young
