    But his attempt failed and instead he merged MGM/UA with his former company, resulting in MGM-Pathé Communications Company.

    During the transaction, Parretti overstated his own financial condition and within a year defaulted to his primary lender, Crédit Lyonnais, which foreclosed on the studio in 1992. This resulted in the sale or closure of MGM/UA's string of US theaters.

    On February 16, 1951, lawyers-turned-producers Arthur B. Krim (of Eagle-Lion Films) and Robert Benjamin approached Pickford and Chaplin with a wild idea: let them take over United Artists for ten years. If, at the end of those years, UA was profitable, they would own half the company.

Already Hollywood veterans, the four stars talked of forming their own company to better control their own work.
