Many award-winning actors may not realize that when they're thanking "the Academy," they really should be thanking Hollywood mogul Louis B. Mayer, who hatched the idea for the Oscar-bestowing organization. This fascinating episode of "Biography" explores the life of a Russian immigrant who built a fortune in the American movie business -- and built his reputation on producing classics such as Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ (1925).
