PolyGram Weighs Buying Samuel Goldwyn Studio: The world's largest recorded-music firm said it is considering making an offer to buy the Los Angeles-based movie company. Alain Levy, president of the Dutch music and film company, which records artists such as Elton John and Sheryl Crow, said he expects to decide in two weeks whether to make a bid for Samuel Goldwyn Co. Goldwyn hired Furman Selz Inc. in New York earlier this month to consider "strategic alternatives" that may include a sale. If PolyGram bids, it would compete with other companies including Viacom Inc., Seagram Co. and Turner Broadcasting System Inc., which are haggling over price, according to a source close to the negotiations.
