Motion Picture and Stage Producer. She was the daughter of Louis B. Mayer and the wife of David O. Selznick. Following her marriage to DOS, Mrs. Selznick began a producing career of her own. As a producer on Broadway, she attained success comparable to that of her father and former husband, counting among her credits Tennessee Williams' "A Streetcar Named Desire," John Van Druten's "Bell, Book and Candle," Enid Bagnold's "The Chalk Garden," and Graham Greene's "The Complaisant Lover." She was also very close friends with Katharine Hepburn and author of "Remembering Kate," A. Scott Berg. Mr. Berg considered Mrs. Selznick a foremost historian of Hollywood and Broadway, as evidenced in her autobiography, "A Private View." (bio by: Karen Henderson-Winge)
