Biography

Impresario who formed the Jesse Lasky Feature Play Company with brother-in-law Samuel Goldfish (later Goldwyn) and Cecil B. DeMille in 1913. The success of their 1914 production, "Squaw Man," put both the company and Hollywood on the map. Following a series of mergers, first with Adolph Zukor's company in 1916, the consolidated outfit was rechristened as Paramount and went on to became a major Hollywood studio. In 1932, Lasky was forced out of the organization he had helped to found and embarked on a moderately successful career as an independent producer. Lasky's son, Jesse Jr. (1908-1988), was an author and screenwriter ("Samson and Delilah" 1949, "The Ten Commandments" 1956).

Rhapsody In Blue (1945) - I've Got Rhythm (Hazel Scott) The real Hazel Scott (seen here) likely never met George Gershwin (played by Robert Alda), but she was known for great performances of his songs, imagined here in the Warner Bros.’ bio-pic, in a Paris nightclub, where he’ll also meet Alexis Smith as fictional Christine, in Rhapsody In Blue, 1945.

Rhapsody In Blue (1945) - I'm Just A Song Plugger Working in Tin Pan Alley, Robert Alda as George Gershwin (who would have been a teenager at the time) receives the improbably charming and fictional Julie Adams (Joan Leslie), samples his own famous tune, then gets fired by Charles Halton, in the Warner Bros.’ bio-pic Rhapsody In Blue, 1945.
Rhapsody In Blue (1945) - The Blues Will Go On Bandleader Paul Whiteman and impresario George White play themselves after the failure of a Blues number by George Gershwin (Robert Alda), who commiserates with brother Ira (Herbert Rudley) and Professor Frank (Albert Basserman), as a new idea emerges, in the bio-pic Rhapsody In Blue, 1945.
Rhapsody In Blue (1945) - Send That Song Over To Me! Agent Max Dreyfus (Charles Coburn) is so impressed with new client George Gershwin (Robert Alda) that he introduces him to Al Jolson (as himself, in dreaded black-face) over the phone in Rhapsody In Blue, 1945.

Sergeant York (1941) - Cuts Down The Haze At Camp Gordon, Georgia, 1917, enduring ridicule from Sergeant Early (Joseph Sawyer), who can't see why a would-be conscientious objector would be handy with a rifle, Gary Cooper (title character) demonstrates mad skills, in Howard Hawks' Sergeant York, 1941.
Sergeant York (1941) - Maybe In A Flash Having trouble changing his ways, Gary Cooper as rural Tennesseean Alvin York is visited at work by non-denominational long-time family pastor Pile (Walter Brennan), who offers telling metaphors, early in Howard Hawks’ Sergeant York, 1941.
Sergeant York (1941) - Render Unto Caesar Sent home to Tennessee by his superiors to consider whether, as a gifted marksman, he ought to serve in combat in World War One, Alvin York (Gary Cooper title character) hears various influences, then returns with his decision to Major Buxton (Stanley Ridges), in Howard Hawks' Sergeant York, 1941.
