Publisher's Summary

More than 75 years after his death, Irving Thalberg remains a celebrated Hollywood figure. In this definitive biography, his legend comes to life - from his beginnings as the "Boy Wonder of Hollywood," when at age 25 he was an MGM mogul, to the creation with Louis B. Mayer of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, to his tragic death at the age of 37.
With his remarkable talent for developing stars and doctoring scripts, this architect of the motion picture film created some of America's best-loved movies: Ben-Hur, Mutiny on the Bounty, A Night at the Opera, Grand Hotel, Romeo and Juliet, The Good Earth, and Camille. His genius has made his name a legend in the land of legends.
Narrated by film director, actor, screenwriter, and producer John Landis, best known as the director of National Lampoon's Animal House, An American Werewolf in London, Trading Places, The Blues Brothers, Beverly Hills Cop III, and Michael Jackson's music video Thriller.
