About

General manager in charge of production and vice-president, Universal Pictures Corporation, 1929-1936, and son of Carl Laemmle. Despite some critical and financial successes, his policy of higher budget and prestige productions placed the company under financial stress, and led to its sale in 1936.  He resigned in April 1936, and after a brief career as an independent producer, left the industry.
