Screen writer Sidney Carroll (1913 - 1988) penned this Samuel Goldwyn (1879 1974) profile at a time when both men had productive futures before them (the former, far more than the latter) but Carroll concluded his article believing that in the future the famed producer and Hollywood founding father would be remembered primarily for his movies rather than his famous contradictory misstatements (known as "Goldwynisms"). Well, note to Carroll: we're now well into the Twenty-First Century and the term Goldwynism is still with us. But this is not the subject of this article (only one page); Carroll put to paper a serious column about the productive life of Goldwyn and all that he had accomplished since he co-founded Hollywood (along with Cecil B. De Mille) in 1913:

"He has done many remarkable things in 30 years... There is this strange thing about the great man: he is the perfect symbol of Hollywood itself. He is the mirror of all its tempests and its triumphs, its past manias and its present maturity... His personality has changed exactly as the movies have changed. His accomplishments have grown with the art of the cinema itself. Even his his vocabulary expanded when the movies learned to talk."
