Norma is too often given short shrift as an actress. Irving Thalberg was a smart guy, if Norma Shearer hadn’t been talented and had a huge fan following he wouldn’t have encouraged her career. The fact is, she was a huge favorite with movie fans and having the boss so strongly on her team was just icing on the cake.

Thanks you guys♥ I’m just worried about him, he’s a really nice person and this shouldn’t have happened. My aunt says the doctors don’t expect any complications so he should be okay. Thank god he was shot in the stomach and not the chest or the head. :(

Ninety years ago on this date, April 17, 1924, three companies merged to form Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, better known as M-G-M, which would become the largest, wealthiest, and most prolific studio of Hollywood’s Golden Age. As founder Louis B. Mayer said, “I want to make beautiful pictures about beautiful people.”
Many of the most important and beloved American movies, including The Big Parade, Grand Hotel, The Wizard of Oz, and Singin’ in the Rain, to name just a few, were made at M-G-M. It has been estimated that about one fifth of movies ever made in the United States were partially shot at the studio. This footage comes from a behind-the-scenes tour short, made in 1925, soon after the establishment of M-G-M.
