Abstract:
Files of George Bagnall, vice president in charge of production who conducted preliminary negotiations with producers and directors, oversaw the progress of production, and maintained a broad range of relationships with producers during the exhibition period. Bagnall's major duties, as reflected in this series of papers, were to keep track of the financing and production costs for the various films. The file includes correspondence with producers and directors; budgets, audit reports, balance sheets, preproduction cost sheets, loan repayment statements, wage earners reports, and tax returns; and correspondence with unions and trade guilds. In addition, Bagnall was president of two small production companies, Romaine Films and United Artists Productions (successor corporation to Walter Wanger Productions). Extensive agreements, financial papers, and reports may be found for these companies, as well as information on such details as operating expenses, Social Security, and other tax matters. Materials relating to Walter Wanger Productions/United Artists Productions are found throughout these files.
