Allied Artists Picture Corporation

Emanuel L Wolf Chairman, and Walter Mortimer Mirisch Lead Producer

Columbia Pictures


Harry Cohn Joe Brandt, and Jack Cohn founders of Columbia Pictures




In 1915, Richard A Rowland (g) created Metro Pictures Corporation in Pittsburgh. Louis B Mayer worked at Metro for 3 years and then formed his own company. Meanwhile, Sam Goldwyn (born Schmuel Gelbfisz) formed a movie producer named Goldwyn Pictures which was most famous for its Roaring Lion logo.


In 1905, Marcus Loew created Loew’s Theaters, and wanted a movie studio to supply his theaters with films. He created MGM by merging Metro, Goldwyn, and Mayer Studios into one company, with Louis B Mayer as CEO.




Paramount pictures was created by Adolph Zukor and Jesse L Lasky. In 1919 they bought 135 theaters, thus becoming the first Movie Theater group to be able to guarantee distribution of its films in its own theaters. Zukor pioneered the concept, now the accepted practice in the film industry, by which the distributor charges the exhibitor a percentage of box-office receipts.




Twentieth Century Pictures was founded in 1933 by Darryl F. Zanuck (g), Joseph Schenck, Raymond Griffith(g) and William Goetz.


Fox Film corporation was created by William Fox (born Vilmos Fried)


The 2 companies merged to form Twentieth Century Fox




Universal pictures founded in 1912 by Carl Laemmle, Charles O. Baumann, Mark Dintenfass(g), , Adam Kessel(g), Pat Powers(g), William Swanson(g), David Horsley(g), Robert H. Cochrane(g), and Jules Brulatour(g), is the oldest surviving film studio in the United States




In 1905, four brothers from Youngstown Ohio opened their own Movie Theater in Youngstown, Ohio. It was a failure. Their father suggested that they go across the PA state line to New Castle PA and try their idea there. That was a success. They were the four Warner Brothers. (born Wonskolaser).Warner Brothers theaters needed movies to show in their theaters; so they created their Hollywood studio.  Darryl F. Zanuck(g) eventually became a top producer More success came after Ernst Lubitsch was hired as Director.

Starting in 1894, Guglielmo Marconi (g) began creating the first operational radio system. However, others had “invented” “wireless telegraphy”. Radio was used as point to point communications – essentially one person talking to another as in ship to shore, and ham radio operators.

Several people had broadcast music, sporting events, and news, but just as a novelty. For years, David Sarnoff had proposed that radio could be used to broadcast commercially, but executives at RCA ignored his ideas. In July 1921 Sarnoff “invented” what we know as commercial radio by broadcasting the boxing match between Jack Dempsey and Georges Carpentier. Up to 300,000 people heard the fight, and demand for home radio equipment bloomed that winter. By the spring of 1922 Sarnoff's prediction of popular demand for broadcasting had come true. Through RCA, Sarnoff created NBC and ABC broadcasting companies.

In 1928, William S Paley bought 16 radio stations and created Columbia Broadcasting System. Under Paley's guidance, CBS would first become one of the largest radio networks in the United States.

Norman Milton Lear and Alan David “Bud” Yorkin

American television writers and film and television producers who has produced, written, created or developed over 100 shows. They are known for many popular 1970s sitcoms, including All in the FamilyMaudeSanford and SonOne Day at a Time, The Jeffersons, and Good Times.


Many people had proposed television broadcasting, but nothing practical existed. In the 1930s, David Sarnoff at RCA was determined to make broadcast Television the successor to broadcast radio.

Sarnoff met with Westinghouse engineer Vladimir Zworykin who was attempting to develop an all-electronic television system at Westinghouse, but with little success. Zworykin had visited the laboratory of the inventor Philo T. Farnsworth, who had developed an Image Dissector, part of a system that could enable a working television. Zworykin experimented with Farnsworth's invention that he had his team at Westinghouse make several copies of the device for experimentation. By 1939, a workable television system had been created.

The first television broadcast aired was the dedication of the RCA pavilion at the 1939 New York World's Fairgrounds and was introduced by Sarnoff himself.

RCA had invested almost 50 million in developing the TV. RCA had a monopoly on Television because it owned the patent on the only working Television system. However, commercial television like commercial radio required a large audience in order to attract the advertisers who would “pay the bills”. RCA could only make and sell thousands of TVs, but millions were required in order to make television commercially successful. So, RCA licensed others to sell their own television using the RCA picture tube. Your grandparents TV might have said Emerson, GE, Motorola, Muntz, Philco, Westinghouse or Zenith, but the picture tube was manufactured by RCA. RCA leveraged the profit motive of those other manufacturers in order to create the commercial television that would allow RCA to recapture its multimillion dollar investment in the development of TV.

William S Paley developed the CBS television broadcasting system.

Cell Phone

The Cell phone was invented by Motorola at its laboratory in Israel.

The cell phone camera was created by Philippe Kahn


The Federal government developed the ARPANET which initially served as a backbone for interconnection of regional academic and military networks in the 1980s.

The Internet is the global system of interconnected computer networks (hardware) that use the Internet protocol suite (TCP/IP) to link devices worldwide so that those computer networks can talk to each other.

The Internet protocol suite (TCP/IP) was developed by Robert E. Kahn and Vint Cerf in the 1970s and became the standard networking protocol on the ARPANET, incorporating concepts from the French CYCLADES project directed by Louis Pouzin(g). The Internet is a worldwide collection of hardware systems which communicate with each other using that protocol.

World Wide Web 

Do not confuse the World Wide Web with the Internet. The World Wide Web (WWW), commonly known as the Web, operates on the Internet. It is an information system where documents and other web resources are found.

English scientist Sir Timothy Berners-Lee (g) invented the World Wide Web in 1989. He wrote the first web browser in 1990 while employed at CERN near Geneva, Switzerland. The browser was released outside CERN to other research institutions starting in January 1991, and then to the general public in August 1991. The Web began to enter everyday use in 1993-4, when websites for general use started to become available

Hedy Lamarr born Hedwig Eva Maria Kiesler; was an Austrian-born American actress, inventor, and film producer. At the beginning of World War II, Lamarr and composer George Antheil developed a radio guidance system using frequency-hopping spread spectrum technology for Allied torpedoes, intended to defeat the threat of jamming by the Axis powers. This is a key to modern wireless communication.  She also helped improve aircraft aerodynamics for Howard Hughes, while they dated during the war. Various spread-spectrum techniques are incorporated into Bluetooth technology and are similar to methods used in legacy versions of Wi-Fi.[


Edwin Herbert Land was an American scientist and inventor, best known as the co-founder of the Polaroid Corporation. He invented inexpensive filters for

polarizing light, a practical system of in-camera instant photography, and the retinex theory of color vision, among other things. His Polaroid instant camera made it possible for a picture to be taken and developed in 60 seconds or less.

Abraham Lempel is an Israeli computer scientist and one of the fathers of the LZ family of lossless data compression algorithms.

David Levy worked for five years at Apple, replacing the Trackball with the first Touchpad and repositioning the laptop keyboard from the front to the back.


Jonas Ferdinand Gabriel Lippmann  was a physicist

and inventor, and Nobel laureate in physics for his method of reproducing colors photographically based on the phenomenon of interference.

Leonard "Lenny" Lipton is an author, filmmaker, lyricist and inventor. He wrote books on independent filmmaking and become a pioneer in the field of projected three-dimensional imagery. His technology is used to show 3D films on more than 30,000 theater screens worldwide.At age 19, Lipton wrote the poem that became the basis for the lyrics to the song "Puff the Magic Dragon"Please insert your text here.
