Personal Quote:

(After seeing the rushes for a sequence in Buster Keaton's "Spite Marriage," Weingarten's second picture picture for MGM) Don't bother to tear that sequence down. I don't like that type of thing in any of MY pictures.


Received the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award from Katharine Hepburn (her only Oscar show appearance) at the 46th Annual Academy Awards® in 1974. He was married to Thalberg's sister, Sylvia.
