In an adventure that would have played well in one of his own films, Schmuel Goldfisz left the Warsaw Ghetto in 1895 and walked 300 miles to the Oder River. There, he paid someone to row him across, smuggling him out of the Russian Empire into Germany. Border patrols couldn't deter him - he was off to America, "a far-away country, a vision of paradise." Once there, Schmuel Goldfisz became Samuel Goldwyn, one of the producers who created the Hollywood film industry and immortal movies including Wuthering Heights and The Best Years of Our Lives. Goldwyn was one of the most colorful and vivid personalities of his time. This biography - read by Roddy McDowall - captures the spirit of a legend.
