Dore Schary Facts
Became head of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (M-G-M) after ousting longtime head and founder Louis B. Mayer. He held the post from 1951 to 1956.

Grandfather of Gabrielle Schary.

He was a staunch Democrat and a liberal activist who believed that film could be used to educate and uplift. His liberalism and inclination toward so-called "message" pictures put him in conflict with his boss, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer founder and studio head Louis B. Mayer, who was a diehard Republican and a major financial supporter of the party. After lackluster financial performance in 1949-50, Nicholas Schenck, chairman of Loew's Inc.--MGM's parent company--sided with Schary, replacing Mayer as production czar in mid-1951.
