Event Description

Everyone who has any connection to Culver City, or who has ever seen a movie, knows the name of “Mayer.” Louis B. Mayer was the legendary head of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, the studio with "more stars than there are in heaven." He gave the world stars like Greta Garbo, Clark Gable, Joan Crawford, Jean Harlow, and Norma Shearer, along with more fabled actors, producers, directors, and designers, while making MGM the home to some of the famous films in history, “Gone With the Wind”, “The Wizard of Oz”, and “Singin’ in the Rain” among them. And he did all of this in Culver City. Mayer's sister, Ida Mayer Cummings, devoted her life to Jewish causes and was such a powerhouse fundraiser in Los Angeles that Bob Hope once quipped Ida was, "the only woman I know who can grab a man by the lapels through the telephone!"

As the family historian, Alicia Mayer (great-grandniece of Mayer) has taken on the responsibility of maintaining the Louis B. Mayer legacy and is the custodian of hundreds of photos and documents relating to the Cummings and Mayer families and MGM. In this special Culver City Centennial event, Alicia will share never before seen photos, memorabilia and insights into MGM and one of Hollywood's - and Culver City’s - first families, plus give away 10 prints of one of the rarest photos in the Mayer collection.

Join us in celebration of Culver City’s Centennial and go behind-the-scenes with an intimate look into the history of MGM, Louis B. Mayer and Culver City!
