He exerted a great influence in Hollywood.
In the middle of the 50's, he personally took care of Marilyn's interests, after she had founded the Marilyn Monroe Productions.
He was known for having negotiated the very first contract according to which an actor gave up a part of his fee in return for the movie takings.
Later, he made Marilyn benefit of this kind of contract. More than 40 years later, Marilyn's legatees get on with earning the return of those contracts.
