Samuel Goldwyn Jr. Tribute


Samuel Goldwyn Jr.: In Memory



Samuel Goldwyn Jr., Robert Mitchum and Goldwyn Sr.



Samuel Goldwyn Jr., who passed away yesterday at age 88 at Cedars-Sinai Hospital, was the son of producer Samuel Goldwyn and his wife Frances Howard.



On Tuesday, September 7, 1926, at 4:15 am, Frances  gave birth to her son at Good Samaritan Hospital (weighing seven and one-half pounds), only hours before most members of the film capitol was at Hollywood Cemetery saying their final good-byes at the funeral of silent film idol, Rudolph Valentino. Goldwyn Sr. took time away from the hospital that day to be a pallbearer for Valentino, a last minute replacement for Norman Kerry who injured his leg on a film set.
