November 19, 1916 Goldwyn Pictures, later to be a part of the MGM triad, is founded. More history and a video compilation of it's opening sequences through the ages after the jump.

Goldwyn made possible such movies as 1920's Officer 666 and Slave of Desire in 1923. These movies are completely unknown to most of us now, yet Goldwyn Pictures was the first to use a logo that it's future merger still utilizes today.
