"If it were not so impractical to close the studio down, every one of the thousands on the lot would be here to pay their tribute of affection to Lewis Stone. It is difficult to say what is his greatest attribute--his character of Americanism or his artistry. But I do say he is a credit to his profession, and it is significant that such a man has become the symobl of fatherhood in America as Judge Hardy. It is fitting that he should be the one to do such a perfect interpretation--and that every boy in America should envy Mickey Rooney that he has such a father in his professional life."--Louis B. Mayer on presenting Stone with a pair of silver spurs in 1938 ("The MGM Stock Company")

In his last years, Stone worked only twelve weeks a year at MGM, but at Mayer's insistence, was paid for a full forty weeks. ("The MGM Stock Company")
