United Artists 100th Anniversary Poll Part IVby penchofifteenpolls | created - 9 months ago | updated - 8 months ago | Public
February 5 of 1919 marks the establishment of United Artists, a movie company that changed history, becoming the first one meant to give actors control over their own interests.
Founded by Charles Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks, Mary Pickford and D.W. Griffith, the studio became mainly known as a distributor, and while it was sold and restructured many times, it still lives today as part of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of United Artists, we have this poll.
From their last 25 years of history, which is the most important United Artists movie?
