MGM is a company at the beginning of its growth cycle, and organic growth -- regardless of the growth rate -- is not sufficient.
MGM's compelling content can help accelerate that growth, which is why our strategy is to acquire an even larger stake in these four cable networks.
So from that standpoint, MGM -- both economically and from the point of view of values -- operates quite differently than what people are used to in a typical studio. /print.php?filename=yemenidjian.txt   (2999 words)

And the trend would continue into the next decade in classic MGM musicals such as Meet Me in St. Louis (1944) and Easter Parade (1948).
Special-effects processes were advanced by the late 1930s, making it possible for many more films to be shot on sets rather than on-location (e.g., The Hurricane (1937) and Captains Courageous (1937).)

 MGM Star Howard Keel Dies - Nov 08, 2004 - E! Online News
With his booming baritone, Keel made a name for himself in several Rodgers and Hammerstein productions on Broadway and the West End during World War II before catching the attention of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, which signed him to a contract and paired him with some of Tinseltown's most popular leading ladies.
Keel's personal favorite was director Stanley Donen's irresistibly silly love story Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (1954), in which he played the eldest of seven Pontipee brothers--all living lonely lives on an Oregon farm in the 1850s--who sets out on a quest to find a wife and happens upon a pretty town girl named Milly.
With his rugged good looks and 6-foot, 4-inch frame, Keel made a commanding screen presence in his subsequent MGM hits, holding down leading-man duties in Show Boat (1951) opposite Kathryn Grayson, Texas Carnival (1951) with Esther Williams and Calamity Jane (1953) costarring Doris Day. /News/Items/0,1,15292,00.html   (845 words)
