History of Paramount Pictures

Paramount Pictures was founded on May 8, 1912 as Famous Players Film Company by William Wadsworth (W. W.) Hodkinson, Adolph Zukor, and Jesse L. Lasky. The company was short-lived and went defunct in 1916, to come back as the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation, from the corporate merger of Adolph's Famous Player Film Company. Paramount is part of the Big Five companies, after Gaumont Film Company (1895), Pathé (1896), followed by Nordisk Film (1906), and Universal Pictures (1912).

In 1916, film producer Adolph Zukor put 22 actors and actresses under contract and honored each with a star on the logo. In 2014, Paramount Pictures became the first major Hollywood studio to distribute all of its films in digital form only. The company's headquarters and studios are located at 5555 Melrose Avenue, Hollywood, California.
Paramount Pictures is a member of the Motion Picture Association of America.
