Background
There is little biographical information found about Max Weinberg. The information below is based on information found in the collection. Max Weinberg was born sometime around the 1920s. He began his career in motion pictures in the 1930s, when he became the managing director for The Little Theatre in Baltimore; he created the ad/publicity campaigns for important foreign films shown at the theater. After about 10 years, he moved to New York and worked for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer as the Eastern Short Subjects Representative, responsible for production involving film shorts east of Chicago. When that department closed, Weinberg became a dubbing writer and producer for the foreign film department, translating French, Italian, and German films into English.
