Gaumont

Gaumont Studio Logo


Gaumont was a French company (owned by Leon Gaumont, an engineer and photographer) which started making films in 1897. By 1912, Gaumont was a major distributor, second only to Pathe Freres, with a chain of cinemas and patents for its own sound system and color film. (Although these worked, and many sound movies were made, they were not at the time commercially viable.)
