Flamini describes Thalberg's complex relationship with his MGM partner Louis B. Mayer, his battles over . Mayer, his battles over censorship with the Hays office and his attempt to turn his wife, Norma Shearer, into the first lady of the screen. Flamini ( Scarlett, Rhett, and a Cast of Thousands ) makes good use of Universal and MGM archives and interviews with Thalberg's friends and collaborators to get a firm grip on this elusive, enigmatic figure.

I love reading biographies on Old Hollywood! Good book! I bought this years ago - in 2009! - and just now got around to writing the review. Irving Thalberg was an interesting man who lived a fascinating life and died young. I still have the book and it has held up well.

A detailed and interesting biography on one of most influential early Hollywood figures. Irving Thalberg was much more than the man whose name is often associated with his annual award given at the Academy Awards. The victim of a congenital heart defect, Thalberg accomplished in his 37 years more than most do in double the life. Anyone interested in early Hollywood history cannot truly understand those times without reading this book and understanding Thalberg's perseverence and tenacity.Although Thalberg died in 1936, his influence remains to the present day.

This was the kind of book you want to memorize if you are interested in the early beginnings of MGM.

Thalberg started out as a secretary to Carl Lemelle, and his brillance and observance of the film industry was noticed by Lemelle and Iriving was placed at Universal as Producer. He took a company with low revenues, and with poor management and made it into a thriving movie making business.

He left there to join forces with Mayer, and they made the deals that subsequently formed MGM.

You will learn much about other producers- and how Irving operated and made MGM a multi-million dollar business.

The journalism is very accurate. I could hardly put this book down for one who wants to digest the early makings of MGM. I also found the spot online where THalberg had his "Ocean Front" home in Santa Monica. Amazing what the internet can tell you.

I would recommend this book. Nice B & W pics too.
