Fox Film Corporation
The Fox Film Corporation was an American company which produced motion pictures, formed in 1915 when founder William Fox merged two companies he had established in 1913: Greater New York Film Rental, a distribution firm, which was part of the Independents; and Fox (or Box, depending on the source) Office Attractions Company, a production company. (see vertical integration)
The company's first film studios were set up in Fort Lee, New Jersey but in 1919 they shifted production to Hollywood, California that offered a more hospitable and cost effective climate for filmmaking. William Fox lost control over the company after the 1929 stock market crash. The new ownership later merged the company with Twentieth Century Pictures to form 20th Century Fox.
