Louis B. Mayer was one of the founding members of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) Studios. His daughter, Irene Mayer Selznick, worked as a crewmember on two films: Bell Book and Candle (1958) and A Streetcar Named Desire (1951). Her husband, successful producer David O. Selznick (King Kong, Gone with the Wind, 1940's Rebecca) was the brother of silent film director Lewis J. Selznick. David and Irene met when he was working as a script reader at MGM. David was also the cousin of Myron Selznick, who became famous for being the first high-profile Hollywood agent (he discovered actress Vivien Leigh). Louis was also the uncle of Jack Cummings (who produced 39 films from 1935-1976), director Fred M. Wilcox, production manager Al Shenberg, and producer/director Gerald Mayer.
