Jack L. Warner Facts

Began as an enthusiastic Democrat, supporting President Franklin D. Roosevelt when Louis B. Mayer and most other studio chiefs were anti-FDR Republicans. Became a Republican later during the post-WWII McCarthy "Red Scare" era.

At the 16th Academy Awards ceremony, when Casablanca (1942) was named Best Picture, Hal B. Wallis, the film's producer, was on his way to the stage to accept the Oscar when Jack cut him off and accepted on behalf of the studio. At the time, the Oscar for Best Picture customarily went to the studio. But, Jack's public rudeness had two consequences: first, Wallis resigned from Warner Brothers in protest; second, producers began exerting more power with the Academy. Within eight years, starting with An American in Paris (1951), the Oscar for Best Picture would go to the film's producer(s) instead of the studio.
