Needs mention[edit]

In Wyndham Wise's Take One's Essential Guide to Canadian Film, Zukor is described as "the most influential figure in Canadian film exhibition and distribution", but Zukor's role in Canadian film is not even mentioned in this article. Further research is required. A good place to start would be Wise's book. 69.195.35.87 10:41, 19 June 2006 (UTC) Where does the spelling Cukor come from? There was a director named George Cukor -- is this the source of confusion?Jrm2007 02:35, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

First to 100[edit]

Would appear to be the first male "Actors, filmmakers and entertainers" to reach age of 100

Cukor?[edit]

Please provide some citation that Zukor was born with this name.--Jrm2007 (talk) 05:31, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

I have in front of me Zukor's autobiography and nothing about Cukor is mentioned. In George Cukor's bio, something about the closeness of the two names is mentioned and perhaps this is the source of the confusion. Anyway, as I requested above, some citation about the name would be nice and until that time, I don't think the Cukor stuff should be in this article.--Jrm2007 (talk) 20:53, 17 May 2013 (UTC)

Teenage sweetheart[edit]

'Mella arrived in the USA too late to wed him.' What does this mean? Had he married someone else by then? Valetude (talk) 23:38, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Arrival in Hollywood[edit]

The article gives no indication of when he left New York for Hollywood. He is usually named as one of the original Hollywood studio-chiefs. Valetude (talk) 23:43, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Dubious[edit]

There is no reference to Mella Baumoel in any serious reference outside Wikipedia --Jbaranao (talk) 13:23, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

The move to Hollywood[edit]

It doesn't say when the New York operation moved to Hollywood. Valetude (talk) 22:56, 9 October 2019 (UTC)

Mary Pickford for $20,000 per year?[edit]

At one point, Pickford told Zukor: "You know, for years I've dreamed of making $20,000 a year before I was 20, and I'll be 20 very soon."

That was in 1912, then, and not in in 1926, as the text here implies. A film star in the mid-1920s would have made at least 4,000 a week and up - Pickford probably much more.
