While driving across country, our car tire blew out. We didn't have a spare. Luckily, it happened right in the middle of Akron, Ohio, the tire capital of the world, and we were able to get it replaced fast!
From 1927 until 1947, Berg and his partner Bert Allenberg represented an empire of great movie stars including Lucille Ball, Wallace Beery, Walter Brennan, Olivia DeHavilland, Melvyn Douglas, Walter Huston, Buster Keaton, Alan Ladd, Charles Laughton and Edward G. Robinson.
Berg, born in New York City Feb. 15, 1902, graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, and became a millionaire before he was 30.
By 1947, he was wealthy from his investments and chose to leave his agency and concentrate on archaeological expeditions.
In 1969, he arranged to leave his collection of artifacts and art, then valued at $1.5 million, to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, while retaining the collection until his death.
Berg married Joan Hartley after the death of his first wife, the former actress Leila Hyams, who he married in 1927.
