Demopolis – “Working for Goldwyn: Demopolis Descends on Hollywood”

May 17, 2013

6:00 p.m. To celebrate Jewish History Month, the program “Working for Goldwyn: Demopolis Descends on Hollywood” chiefly examines the life of Arthur Mayer (born in Demopolis in 1886) with a screening of the Oscar nominated film about his life: “Arthur and Lillie.” Mayer and Hellman were two descendants of Demopolis’s Jewish community who worked for Samuel Goldwyn and became major forces in American film. Arthur Mayer was the son of Simon (or Sigmund) Mayer, one of the brothers who established Mayer Brothers Department Store (of course, now RBC).
