Here’s a great picture of Paramount Pictures’s chief, the one and only Adolph Zukor with the Queen of England in the 1930’s. This kind of gives you an idea of how powerful this great business man was. The story of Adolph Zukor could be the basis for a great movie which I don’t think has ever been tried. I’ve shared this still from The Little Girl with the Big Voice because Adolph Zukor put Mary Small in a Fleischer Brother’s film after seeing her sell out his Paramount Theater in the 1930’s.
This is a very, very early shot of Mary from the Baltimore Sun, probably when she was about 9 or 10 years old. Only 2 years later she would be sent to Hollywood by Adolph Zukor to perform in Love Thy Neighbor for the Fleischer Brothers and Paramount Pictures, the best show in town. She was an adorable child and grew to be almost as gorgeous as my wife!
