Louis B Mayer, founder of MGM movie studio.

(From Wikipedia): Born Lazar Meir, possibly on July 12, 1884, to a Jewish family in Minsk, Russian Empire.[1][4]  His father started a scrap metal business, J. Mayer & Son. In 1904, the 19-year-old Mayer left Saint John for Boston, where he continued for a time in the scrap metal business, married, and took a variety of odd jobs to support his family when his junk business lagged. Mayer renovated the Gem Theater, a rundown, 600 seat burlesque house in Haverhill, Massachusetts,[8] which he reopened on November 28, 1907 as the Orpheum, his first movie theater.
