The company is the result of a merger between two separate companies: Fox Film Corporation founded by William Fox in 1914, and Twentieth Century Pictures, begun in 1933 by Darryl F. Zanuck, Joseph Schenck, Raymond Griffith and William Goetz. Fox had been a pioneer in creating the theater "chain", having converted several New York City nickelodeons to show feature films. By 1914, with a string of theaters, he began producing, and in 1917 hit the jackpot by presenting the sensation of her time, Theda Bara. Fox was more of an entrepreneur than a showman, though, and he concentrated on the business side, acquiring and building theaters at a ferocious clip. The film studio was an adjunct, a provider of product to keep the growing chain filled. Seeing the possibility of sound films, Fox acquired rights to a German sound-on-film process which he dubbed "Movietone." The Fox Film Corporation was an American company which produced motion pictures, formed in 1915 when founder William Fox merged two companies he had established in 1913: Greater New York Film Rental, a distribution firm, which was part of the Independents; and Fox (or Box, depending on the source) Office...

The Los Angeles studio, at Santa Monica Boulevard and Western Avenue, was cramped, so in 1926 Fox acquired three-hundred acres in the open country west of Beverly Hills and built his "Movietone City," the best-equipped studio of its time.


The passsing of rival Marcus Loew in 1927 presented an opportunity to Fox. He offered to buy the Loew family's shares in Loew's Inc., which controlled more than two-hundred theaters as well as the MGM studio. An agreement was made and early in 1929 the merger of Fox and Loew's Inc. was announced. But MGM studio boss Louis B. Mayer, not included in the deal, fought back through his political connections, calling the anti-trust unit of the Justice Department in to block the merger. Meanwhile, fate intervened when Fox was badly injured in a car wreck; by the time he recovered, the 1929 stock market crash had taken most of his fortune, and it put an end to the Loew's merger. Marcus Loew Marcus Loew (May 7, 1870–September 5, 1927) was an American business magnate and a pioneer of the motion picture industry who formed Loews Theatres and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, MGM.

Over-extended, near bankruptcy, Fox was stripped of his empire. Fox Film, with more than five-hundred theaters, was placed in receivership; a bank-mandated reorganization propped the company up for a time, but it was clear a merger was the only way Fox Film could survive.


Across town at Warner Brothers, head of production Darryl Zanuck was caught up in a feud over money; tight-fisted Warners had cut costs in the depression by reducing salaries. When Zanuck asked for his pay to be restored, they refused, and he quit. Within days he announced a partnership with Joseph Schenck, president of United Artists, to start a new company, Twentieth Century Pictures. Begun in mid-1933, releasing four to six pictures a year through United Artists, Twentieth Century was a success, in part due to the financial backing of investors L.B. Mayer and Nicholas Schenck, Joe's brother and head of Loews. Warner Bros. ...

Schenck, born in Rybinsk, Russia on November 14, 1881 - died March 4, 1969 in Florida, was a motion-picture mogul and impresario. ...


Two years later, Joe Schenck got Fox Film management to agree to a merger; Zanuck would head production, and Joe Schenck would be chief executive. So unlikely did this mouse-and-elephant combination seem that trade papers suggested the new company would be called "Fox-Twentieth Century." But under the name Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation, the new studio began at the end of May, 1935.

Zanuck had little to work with from Fox Film; the studio's biggest star, Will Rogers, was killed in a plane crash weeks after the merger. Its other leading star, Janet Gaynor, was fading in popularity. Two promising leading men, James Dunn and Spencer Tracy, had been dropped because both had drinking problems. Zanuck signed and promoted to stardom players who would carry Twentieth Century-Fox for years: Tyrone Power, Don Ameche, Henry Fonda, ice-skater Sonja Henie, and Betty Grable. And on the Fox payroll he found two actors who would be the studio's leading assets: Alice Faye and seven-year-old Shirley Temple. Will Rogers. ...

Specializing in popular biographies and musicals, Zanuck built Fox back to profitability. Propelled by surging attendance during World War II, Fox passed RKO and even mighty MGM to become the third-most profitable studio. But when Zanuck went off for eighteen months' war service, a crack appeared in the company. Junior partner William Goetz kept profits high by emphasizing light entertainment; the studio's - indeed the industry's, biggest star was creamy blonde Betty Grable. When Zanuck returned in 1943, he professed outrage that Fox's output wasn't more serious-minded. Within weeks. Goetz and producer Nunnally Johnson had been fired (they went on to launch International Pictures); Zanuck re-focused Fox on harder-hitting fare than had been his custom. Over the following years, in pictures like Wilson, Gentleman's Agreement, The Snake Pit, Boomerang and Pinkie, Zanuck established his reputation as one of Hollywood's leading liberals. Fox's other great franchise in this period was for adaptations of best-selling books and Broadway musicals.

Still, audiences began drifting away as early as 1947, and the arrival of television speeded up the process. Fox held on to its theaters until a court-mandated divorce caused them to be spun off as Fox National Theaters in 1953. That year, with attendance at one-half of what it had been in 1946, Fox gambled on an unproven gimmick to bring people back. The two movie sensations of 1952 had been Cinerama, which required three projectors to overwhelm the audience, and "Natural Vision" 3-D, which got its effects of depth by requiring the use of polarized glasses. Hoping to gain from these sensations, Fox mortgaged the studio to buy rights to a French anamorphic projection system which gave a slight illusion of depth without glasses. In February, 1953, Zanuck and chairman Spyros Skouras announced that henceforth all Fox pictures would be made in CinemaScope. To convince theater owners to install this new process, Fox agreed to help pay the cost of conversion (said to be about $25,000 per screen). To insure that there would be enough product, Fox gave access to CinemaScope to any rival studio choosing to use it. Seeing the box-office takings of the first two CinemaScope features, The Robe and How to Marry a Millionaire, Warners, MGM, Universal and Columbia quickly adopted the process. Eat me! Cinemascope, or more strictly CinemaScope, was a widescreen movie format used from 1953 to 1967. ... The Robe, a 1952 historical novel featuring the Crucifixion, written by Lloyd C. Douglas, is more familiar as a 1953 Biblical epic film which tells the story of a Roman tribune who commands the unit that crucifies Jesus. ... How to Marry a Millionaire is a 1953 film, directed by Jean Negulesco, starring Lauren Bacall, Marilyn Monroe, and Betty Grable about three women, searching for wealthy husbands, who decide to share an apartment in New York. ...


For a time CinemaScope brought a sharp up-turn in attendance, but by 1956 the gimmick had grown familiar and the numbers again began to slide. That year Darryl Zanuck startled Hollywood by announcing his resignation as head of production. Officially it was attributed to burn-out, but others believed there was a personal reason, as supposedly Mrs. Zanuck had threatened divorce (in community-property California) after discovering Zanuck's affair with his protege, actress Bella Darvi. Zanuck removed to Paris, to set up there as an independent producer, and did not set foot in California again for fifteen years.


In his place, Fox installed a respected producer, Buddy Adler.

Twentieth (20th) Century Fox, shorthand for Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation, is one of the Big Ten movie studios, located in the Century City area of Los Angeles, California, USA, just west of Beverly Hills.
The studio has its origins in two separate companies: Fox Film Corporation founded by William Fox in 1915, and Twentieth Century Pictures, formed in 1932 by Darryl F. Zanuck (formerly of Warner Brothers), Joseph Schenck of United Artists and William Goetz of Fox Films.
After financial problems forced William Fox out of his company, new leadership under president Sidney Kent agreed to a merger between the two companies and Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation was formed in 1935.
