Records of United Artists Corporation (UA) and its subsidiaries Warner Bros. Pictures, Monogram Pictures, Ziv-TV, Eagle-Lion, Producers Releasing Corporation, and Wanger Productions as well as Vitaphone shorts. Contains corporate records, legal records, executive records, financial records, advertising files, sales records, and films. Corporate records, which include correspondence, reports, financial and legal records, and advertising materials, relate almost entirely to the first ownership and more particularly to operations during the 1930s and 1940s. Although few documents directly relate to the original partners, the collection offers excellent files on the legal, financial, sales, and advertising aspects of distribution. There are production files and scripts for only a few UA releases and no UA films in the collection, as these records belonged to their producers. Films, scripts, and related papers are present, however, in the extensive purchased film library which comprises the remainder of the collection.
