This year marks the 100th anniversary of movie studio United Artists. From 1920’s The Mark of Zorro through to this year’s brilliant Booksmart, they’ve given us a huge array of classic movies.
The studio was founded in 1919 by DW Griffith, Charlie Chaplin, Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, with the idea of being for the artists by the artists.
Over the years they’ve brought us franchises such as the James Bond movies, Stallone’s Rocky series and the tales of The Pink Panther. They’ve also nabbed their fair share of ‘Best Picture’ Oscars, including Around the World in 80 Days, West Side Story, In the Heat of the Night, Midnight Cowboy, Annie Hall and Rain Man.
Current UA owner MGM have put together a tribute video which is sure to provoke great memories amongst classic film buffs – and here it is!
