Is he the VIP L B Meyer(1884.07.12-1957.10.1957), producer of Metro and resposible for the infamous casting couch and who has tried to finish the Billy Wilder's carrer?
Dec-01-10  offramp: That was Mayer with an A.
Dec-02-10  Antiochus: OK, that's right.Hum..this is a bad beginning. Anyway, could be him. Thanks.
