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.

Trivia:

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.
