In 1895, teenager Schmuel Goldfisz left the Warsaw ghetto to become Samuel Goldwyn, one of the most acclaimed producers in Hollywood history. Among Goldwyn's films are such classics as The Pride of the Yankees, Wuthering Heights, and The Bishop's Wife—all famous for conveying the "Goldwyn Touch." In this detailed biography, acclaimed author A. Scott Berg recounts the fascinating life of one of the most colorful personalities of Hollywood's Golden Age. From his escape to the United States at the turn of the century to his Academy Award-winning triumph with The Best Years of Our Lives, Goldwyn's story would have played well in one of his own films. Here is a very special look at Hollywood and one of its leading figures—as read by Hollywood icon Roddy McDowell.
