Pallas Pictures

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Pallas Pictures was an American film production company initially founded in 1913 as Hobart Bosworth Productions Company (or Bosworth Inc.) by Hobart Bosworth to produce melodramas based on Jack London's novels. Throughout the company's lifespan under Hobart Bosworth, Frank A. Garbutt had most of the control in the business. When Bosworth left in 1915, Garbutt fully controlled the company and it was renamed to Pallas Pictures. Three years later, the brand was discontinued.
