United Artists just turned 90 and we are here to celebrate!!

Formed back in 1919 by the famous Mary Pickford, Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks and D.W. Griffith, United Artists aimed to encourage progressive filmmaking and to give each star the authority and autonomy to create films in which they were passionate.

United Artists has been responsible for creating some of the finest films of all time including iconic film franchises such as Rocky, Pink Panther and James Bond. It was also responsible for critically acclaimed and award-winning features including Rain Man, Annie Hall, West Side Story, Some Like It Hot and Raging Bull.

Today United Artists has a library of nearly 500 feature films and boasts more than 80 Academy Award® winning classics.
