GOLDWYN SAID IT!

Advertising for Samuel Goldwyn’s 1934 film,WE LIVE AGAIN included a poster which read:

THE DIRECTORIAL  GENIUS OF MAMOULIAN, THE BEAUTY OF STEN, AND THE PRODUCING GENIUS OF GOLDWYN HAVE BEEN COMBINED TO MAKE THE WORLD’S GREATEST ENTERTAINMENT.”

Goldwyn looked at the poster and said,

“That’s the kind of ad I like. Facts. No exaggeration.”

But the film turned out to be what Hollywood called a ‘stinkeroo.”
