at the May 6, 1934,
Jean Harlow, Irving Thalberg and Norma Shearer at the May 6, 1934
wedding of actress Carmelita Geraghty and screenwriter Carey Wilson.

Thalberg - Hollywood's "Boy Wonder" of the 1920s and 1930s - helped
create the studio system. He oversaw production of such mammoth hit
films as Ben Hur (1925), Grand Hotel (1932) and Mutiny on the Bounty (1935).

Thalberg died in September 1936 at the age of 37. Shortly afterwards, the Academy
created the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award, which is presented periodically to
producers "whose body of work reflects a consistently high quality of motion picture production."
