Nope, it was a woman!!! And she was also a fairly prominent screenwriter of the time. I actually think she parlayed her success at screenwriting into an executive position, since she managed to obtain a certain amount of casting rights for her scripts. Four Horseman was a product of Metro Pictures Corp., before the merger of the studios, and I believe at this point in time, Mayer still was operating Louis B. Mayer Productions. MGM came into being in 1924, when Marcus Loew bought Mayer Pictures and Goldwyn Pictures, in order to have a steady supply of pictures for his movie theatres.

I guess it must be June Mathis, probably not quite as talented as she was made out to be, credited with discovering Rudy - about whom she fed stories to the papers of their grand passion [probably not true, though they were seen together at many Hollywood parties,etc].

You are correct, ma'am. I do believe she was quite the opportunist! Her relationship, whatever it was, with Valentino was waylaid by his marriage to Rambova.

'Ma'am'!!! How did I get to be ma'am ... I'm so young. Let's see, I'm only ... what? HOW old? Oh, no! I AM 'ma'am'

Ahem - it's trivia time

What was the first mainstream feature to show a woman wearing a bra [and half slip]?

[Half slip ... gosh, does anyone still wear those?]
That's not the question. The one about the bra is the question.
I know you know I know you know I know you know that.

It's certainly a million miles away from the one I had in mind, but it's just SOOOOOOO original I'm gonna give it to you! You smart Bean, you!

The 'real' answer, apparently, is Janet Leigh in Psycho. Like that was the least of her worries

Yeah she was a thief as well the silly sasuage.

Thanks for being so generous BaftaB

This questions nearly belongs in Mthe Movie quotes section but for the fact that it is someone commenting on a movie rather than a line from a movie.

Who said this about who?
"Thatís the first movie Iíve seen where the male lead has bigger tits than the female."

Groucho Marx of Victor Mature. (Marx saw Hedy Lamarr running naked in Ecstasy so he spoke the truth). He was talking about Samson and Delilah.

In a difficult scene to stage, Hero stands by the edge of a forest and lets out a long low whistle. Over a rise in the clearing a great unbridled stallion appears and gallops over to hero who strokes the horse's neck. Name the hero, horse and movie.
