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.

Was to have played himself on an "I Love Lucy" (1951) episode. Business commitments necessitated his canceling the appearance, and he was played by Philip Ober, the then-husband of Lucille Ball's co-star, Vivian Vance.
