From 1989: Hollywood stars attend Disney's MGM Studios grand opening

Selznick, but no one seemed to have the sure touch of Thalberg. Mayer and Thalberg disagreed with the decision. The company was spun out in , with the studio's then owner Kirk Kerkorian maintaining a large share, but it ended all affiliation with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in MGM was the last studio to convert to sound pictures, but in spite of this fact, from the end of the silent film era through the late s, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer was the dominant motion picture studio in Hollywood. By , MGM had released all of its contract players, with many either retiring or moving on to television. Still, as the Great Depression deepened, MGM began to economize by "recycling" existing sets, costumes, and furnishings from yesteryear projects. The debt load from these and subsequent business deals negatively affected MGM's ability to survive as a separate motion picture studio. In , MGM purchased the rights to the Our Gang series and moved the production in-house, [26] continuing production of the successful series of children's comedies until From to , MGM produced a series of comedy shorts called All Barkie Dogville Comedies , in which trained dogs were dressed up to parody contemporary films and were voiced by actors. This management-by-committee resulted in MGM losing its momentum, developing few new stars and relying on the safety of sequels and bland material. Avery left the studio in , leaving Hanna and Barbera to focus on the popular Tom and Jerry and Droopy series. MGM released The Viking , the first complete Technicolor feature with a synchronized score and sound effects, but no spoken dialogue. Today The Wizard of Oz is regularly shown on the Turner -owned channels, no longer just once a year. Marcus Loew died in , and control of Loew's passed to Nicholas Schenck. Of the five stars, Loy and MacDonald were the only two whom Mayer rehired, in and respectively. MGM produced some well-regarded and profitable musicals that would be later acknowledged as classics, among them An American in Paris , Singin' in the Rain , and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers However, Brigadoon , Deep in My Heart , It's Always Fair Weather , and Invitation to the Dance , were extravagant song and dance flops, and even the now-classic The Band Wagon lost money in its initial release. Mayer , Loew addressed the situation by buying Louis B. In by coincidence, the year Mayer died , the studio lost money for the first time in its year history.

In , it was announced that MGM was to merge with 20th Century Fox , but the plan never came to fruition. Their first full-fledged talkie, the musical The Broadway Melody , however, was both a box-office success and won the Academy Award as Best Picture of the Year.

Schary's reign at MGM had been marked with few bona-fide hits, but his departure along with the retirement of Schenck in left a power vacuum that would prove difficult to fill. From then on, MGM regularly produced several films a year in Technicolor with Northwest Passage being one of the most notable. Shearer and Garbo never made another film after leaving the lot. As the studio system faded in the late s and s, MGM's prestige faded with it. Although Deitch's Tom and Jerry cartoons were considered to be vastly inferior to the earlier Hanna and Barbera shorts, they did receive positive reviews in some quarters. MGM found it difficult to attract them to theaters. The Tom and Jerry cartoons won seven Academy Awards between and In , Tex Avery , another Schlesinger alumnus, joined the animation department. In , Ub Iwerks canceled the unsuccessful Flip the Frog series and MGM began to distribute its second series of cartoons, starring a character named Willie Whopper , that was also produced by Ub Iwerks.

Until the mids, MGM could make a claim its rivals could not: it never lost money, although it did have an occasional disaster like Parnell , Clark Gable's biggest flop. In a landmark event, the film became the first American theatrical fiction film to be shown complete in one evening on prime time television over a major American commercial network. Olivier's version of Hamlet was shown on prime time network TV a month later, but split in half over two weeks, and the film, The Titan: Story of Michelangelo was telecast by ABC in , but that was a documentary. These records were sold only at Loew's theaters. Approached by Louis B.

Shearer was still a money maker despite screen appearances becoming scarce, and Crawford continued her box-office power until Mayer and Irving Thalberg's relationship began warmly, but eventually the two became estranged; Thalberg preferred literary works to the crowd-pleasers Mayer wanted. Beginning in , and lasting until , telecasts of The Wizard of Oz became an annual tradition, drawing huge audiences in homes all over the U. In , movie theater magnate Marcus Loew had a problem. This recycling practice never let up once started.

The year also marked the end of MGM's animation department, as the studio determined it could generate the same amount of revenue by reissuing older cartoons as it could by producing and releasing new ones. Also playing a huge role was Ida Koverman , Mayer's secretary and right hand. Mayer was active in the California Republican Party and used his political connections to persuade the Justice Department to delay final approval of the deal on antitrust grounds. He had bought Metro Pictures Corporation in for a steady supply of films for his large Loew's Theatres chain. Initial feature film sales focused on selling to the networks. In addition, MGM saved money because it was the only one of the big five studios that did not own an off-site movie ranch. The first cartoon in this series entitled Fiddlesticks was the first sound cartoon to be produced in two-color Technicolor. During this time, in the summer of , Fox was badly hurt in an automobile accident. With the arrival of talkies , MGM moved slowly and reluctantly into sound era, releasing features like White Shadows in the South Seas with music and sound effects, and Alias Jimmy Valentine with limited dialogue sequences. Increasingly, before and during World War II, Mayer came to rely on his "College of Cardinals" — senior producers who controlled the studio's output. MGM, however, was the very last studio to convert to " talkies " with its first all-color, "all-talking" sound feature with dialogue being the musical The Rogue Song MGM included a sequence made in Technicolor's superior new three-color process, a musical number in the otherwise black-and-white The Cat and the Fiddle , starring Jeanette MacDonald and Ramon Novarro.
