On May 20, 1960 , there was a little baby born to Samuel Goldwyn Jr. and Jennifer Howard. They named their bundle of joy Anthony Howard Goldwyn. “Tony” may have been born in a Hollywood family, but he wasn’t raised around the familiar stars and studios despite the fact that his grandfather was the Hollywood mogul, Samuel Goldwyn, head of MGM. His parents wanted him to be a normal kid, not a Hollywood brat.
But Tony was determined to be in show business and thank God. He has had a long and illustrious career. Paying his dues, he has achieved the stardom that he so deserved. Tony is also very involved in charities , especially with the arts and the fight for a cancer cure. On his fifty fifth birthday, we at Chitownstarconnections want to wish him the best of birthdays. Nothing but the best for our “POTUS”
