Did You Know?
The first MGM Lion was Irish. The iconic MGM lion, which appears before every MGM film since the studio’s birth, has been a number of different lions since the early 20th century, but the very first MGM Lion was a Dubliner! Slats, born in the Dublin Zoo in 1919, was used on every black and white MGM film between 1924 and 1928. To this day, he is the only MGM lion not to roar, though reportedly he could growl on cue.
