Background
King Bros. Productions was an American film production company formed in 1942 by brothers Frank, Herman, and Maurice. The brothers came to Hollywood from Chicago with their family and got involved with jukeboxes and arcade machines before setting themselves up as independent producers. Their production company was headquartered at Monogram Studio, prior to the move into their own office in Hollywood in 1951. In 1966, the company relocated to Culver City and entered into a relationship with Metro-Goldwyn- Mayer whereby the studio would advance production costs. The company became King International Corporation in 1970, with offices in Beverly Hills.
