Samuel Goldwyn (1882–1974), U.S. film producer. Attributed in The Great Goldwyn, ch. 1, Alva Johnston (1937).
In Paul F. Boller, Jr. and John George, They Never Said It, Goldwyn's actual words are said to have been, "His verbal contract is worth more than the paper it's written on," referring to movie executive Joseph M. Schenck, who was regarded as completely trustworthy. This was possibly another of the many Goldwynisms cooked up by his own staff.
