Personal Quote:

["Etude", 1927] I wanted to live my life so that it would be of as much value to as many of my fellow men as possible. The moving pictures struck my imagination very forcefully. I saw in them something which would relieve the tension of the American businessman.


The last ever Roxy theatre, the RKO Roxy, to have been opened by him in New York City was at 49th Street and Sixth Avenue. Its longevity was from 1932 - 1956 and has vanished without trace. See more »
