Carl Laemmle, Sr. (1867-1939), a German immigrant who started in Chicago building nickelodeons, busted the film "Trust" system by independently joining with others. He created the star system and founded Universal Pictures in 1912. Circa 1915, Laemmle built his Universal City on 230 acres in north Los Angeles, which became the first municipality devoted to the manufacture of films. Over the years he was known for producing quality films and stars. Laemmle, who took his company public on the NYSE in 1925, sold his interest to a syndicate for $5.5 million in 1936. Letter lightly soiled at blank margin. Light mailing folds. Otherwise, fine condition.
