The Quiz: Who produced the most expensive movie ever made in the Great Depression?
Cecil B. DeMille
Samuel L. Goldwyn
Explanation : Combining his love of film and aviation, Howard Hughes produced what was, at the time, the most expensive movie in history. “Hell’s Angels” reportedly cost more than $4 million in 1930, which would be about $71 million today. Joseph Kennedy Sr. was also briefly a major player in Hollywood, but he focused on low-budget movies. While “Hell’s Angels” didn’t even return a profit on its first run, Kennedy left the industry after five years with a profit of $5 million.
Correct Answer: Howard Hughes
