Critic Dwight MacDonald on Thalberg: "... in the country of the blind, Schary and Thalberg were literate compared to others, were mistaken for Goethes... A Thalberg is to an actual movie what a hamburger is to an actual steak.".
Credit you give yourself is not worth having. Thalberg would not allow his name on his pictures; the one exception being The Good Earth (1937), posthumously.
So often referred to solutions for complex problems as "a lead pipe cinch," it became his catchphrase.
