1937 Vintage photograph of film executive Louis B. Mayer who was being reported at the time as the highest paid American for the tax year in which he made $1,296,503. Tax rates were so high at the time for the wealthy that he only took home about $375,000, but that was still quite the sum for the Depression years! Issued by the International News and stamped on the back with a full paper caption as well.
