After Turner's brief involvement, MGM/UA began operating under new management and subsequently became profitable thanks to box-office hits such as ''Baby Boom'', ''Film/{{Moonstruck}}'', ''Film/{{A Fish Called Wanda}}'', ''[[Film/{{ChildsPlay}} Child's Play]]'', and ''Film/{{Rain Man}}'', the latter a Best Picture Oscar winner. However, when Kerkorian decided to sell the company again, the studio head left. MGM ended up being sold to Italian financier Giancarlo Parretti, who also held French film company Pathe and Creator/TheCannonGroup at the time. It turned out, however, that he had borrowed money for the deal under false pretenses, and after not being able to make the payments on the leveraged-buyout deal he'd used to buy MGM, his bank (Credit Lyonnais) foreclosed on him and took control of MGM and Pathe. Parretti ended up being convicted of securities fraud, and MGM ended up back with Kerkorian in 1997. Shortly after that and continuing into 1999, MGM assumed control of several other film companies and libraries, including Creator/OrionPictures (which they have since revived as a sub-label), The Samuel Goldwyn Company (though Goldwyn himself soon formed another company), and Creator/PolygramFilmedEntertainment's pre-1996 library, which also included films from Hemdale and Creator/CastleRockEntertainment.
