The illiterate father supported a wife and three children by dealing in scrap metal in the street. Louis, born in 1884, was educated till age 13. He spoke English but was not street-wise and had no trade, money or connections. Thinking he could set up a junk business, he got himself arrested for having no license.

Lion of Hollywood: The Life and Legend of Louis B. Mayer. Lion of Hollywood is the definitive biography of Louis B. An immigrant from tsarist Russia, Mayer began in the film business as an exhibitor but soon migrated to where the action and the power were-Hollywood.

Scott Eyman has accomplished the near impossible - he's taken Louis B. Mayer, the comic goblin of so many Hollywood histories, and restored him to his rightful place as one of the great business executives of the twentieth century. Laughable no more, Mayer is a fascinating amalgam of vision, chutzpa, cunning, and sheer genius.

El león de Hollywood book. Such a thorough biography of Louis B. Mayer, it was very entertaining and fascinating to read. With so many different people interviewed it definitely gave the impression and Mr. Mayer was a complicated individual who was different things to different people. I felt I had a well-rounded impression of his life as well as his family's.

For Eyman, the story of Louis B. Mayer is a story not just of one . Eyman tracks Mayer's rise and fall with exhaustive detail and novelistic sweep. In "Lion of Hollywood" he shows us a man whose great strength for managing talent became his great weakness and eventually his undoing

Mayer was born in a small Ukrainian city on July 12, 1884, and was curiously given to lying about both the place and the date. In "Lion of Hollywood" he shows us a man whose great strength for managing talent became his great weakness and eventually his undoing. What his system could not do was nurture new directors.

Lion of Hollywood is the definitive biography of Louis B. Mayer, the chief of MGM-the biggest and most successful film studio of Hollywood's Golden Age.

For two generations, Louis B. Mayer (1885–1957) was one of the most respected and feared men in the American film industry. From his early days as an independent producer to his long reign at MGM, Mayer had an unparalleled eye for both the bottom line and his personal view of quality films. This exhibition is prompted by the publication of Scott Eyman’s Lion of Hollywood: The Life and Legend of Louis B. Mayer (Simon & Schuster, 2005), which promises to be the definitive biography of this titan.

Louis B. Mayer would make a great character in a movie - but definitely not the kind of high-gloss, reassuring movie in which MGM specialized during his 27-year reign. Veteran film historian and biographer Eyman takes a more nuanced view in this well written and astute book. He’s heard all the nasty stories - and retells many of them - but the author acknowledges Mayer’s loyalty as well as his vindictiveness, his personal generosity and his sharp financial dealings, the charm he poured on when he wasn’t throwing temper tantrums.
