Universal Studios is a Hollywood, California based American film production company, founded by Carl Laemmle in 1912 and used two studios in the beginning.
In 1915 moved to one site, called the Universal City, in the San Fernando Valley.
Many of important films were produced by Universal, including All Quiet on the Western Front, Frankenstein, and Dracula.
Amongst the many of Its stars was Rudolph Valentino, Lon Chaney, Wallace Reid, and Boris Karloff and its directors John Ford and Erich von Stroheim.
Due to financial trouble, Laemmle lost control of the studio in 1936.
A series of popular films saved the company, such as the musicals, Three Smart Girls, 100 Men and a Girl, the screwball comedy My Man Godfrey and the comedies of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello.

Part of Universal City is today is a theme park open for tourist and featuring some of the studios, stages, backgrounds and props used in previous 'Blockbuster' films.
