Forgotten Studio Head

Irving Thalberg Hollywood Historian, Manny Pacheco, takes Art Kirsch and John Coleman of Celebrating Act 2™ back in time to the great movie making era of the 1930’s and 40’s to reintroduce them to one of the most creative and influential studio heads ever: Irving Thalberg. Mostly forgotten today, Thalberg was unique and prolific. They even discuss the question of whether Thalberg was truly a studio chief or just a producer working under the legendary Louis B Mayer. You’re no doubt familiar with his work and the actors he turned into stars …and now you’ll know why you should remember his name!
