    He was referred to as 'The Boy Wonder.'
    His film 'Grand Hotel' won the Oscar for Best Picture without being nominated in any other categories.
    Despite a spectacularly successful career, he is mainly remembered for having an award named in his honor.
    His health was so bad that doctors predicted he wouldn't live past twenty-five, but he made it to thirty-seven.
    He was named Head of Production at Universal Studios at twenty-one.
    He was named Head of Production at MGM Studios at twenty-four.
    He refused to put his name on films he produced, feeling that credit was something that should be given and not taken.

    The Motion Picture Academy's Irving Thalberg Award, honoring the industry's outstanding producer, is named after him.
