CARL LAEMMLE

Carl Laemmle is a feature documentary about the extraordinary life story of Carl Laemmle, the German-Jewish immigrant who founded Universal Pictures and created the modern movie business. Heroically, he used his power, wealth, fame and dedication to save over 300 Jewish families from Nazi Germany. In 1936, due to the effects of the Depression, Carl Laemmle was forced to sell Universal Pictures. Yet, losing his studio gave him the opportunity until his death in 1939, to devote himself to an even greater cause: saving lives and thereby creating a legacy in their many descendants that thrive to this day.
