Once the noisiest studio in town, MGM has become the quietest, but also -- to the surprise of many -- one of the most consistently profitable. As such, it reflects the personality of its CEO, Gary Barber, a modest South African who believes that CEOs should be seen but not heard -- well, not seen too much either. In its own quiet way, MGM produces 5 7 movies a year, has 14 TV shows on the air, has earned a profit of $124 million in its first quarter, and is positioned to make some intriguing acquisitions in the coming year.So where is Barber taking MGM? Will the major mini become a major major? Executives at rival studios think MGM might re enter the distribution business next year with the next James Bond film, but this is still speculation.
