Combining production, distribution, and theater operations under their Triangle Film Corporation, the young upstarts created the most dynamic studio in Hollywood. They attracted the greatest directors and stars of the day -- including D.W. Griffith, Mary Pickford, Lillian Gish, Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle, and Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. -- and produced some of the most enduring films of the silent era, from the Keystone Cops to the defining cinematic epic Birth of a Nation. Triangle Film Corporation was the first time a film company went public which was in 1915.
