Among the funnymen attending the March 13 Off-Broadway opening of funny man Alan King's Mr. Goldwyn were filmdom's Carl Reiner (with his wife Estelle) and Billy Crystal (with his wife, Janice).

Mr. Goldwyn, by Marsha Lebby and John Lollos, takes place in film mogul Goldwyn's Hollywood office in 1952 when Goldwyn had only a few hit movies left in him. He had already produced "Wuthering Heights," "Little Foxes," "Stella Dallas," "Pride of the Yankees" and "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," when his career declined in the 1950's. Today, he is also remembered for his Goldwynisms - malaprops like "A verbal contract isn't worth the paper it's written on" and "In two words: im-possible." Gene Saks, famed for Neil Simon's works, directs.
