Joining Film Fight, Hungary Tries To Go Hollywood

I love the lede:

In Hollywood's early days, Hungarians helped build the movie business. Adolph Zukor founded Paramount, William Fox (born Wilhelm Fried) started 20th Century Fox, and director George Cukor blazed a trail from "The Philadelphia Story" to "My Fair Lady." In Hollywood legend, a sign on one studio door once warned, "It's not enough to be Hungarian, you have to have talent too."
