A Jewel Production. Universal made a conscious business decision not to own a theater chain (a move that would pay huge dividends after the 1949 Supreme Court anti-trust decision that would impact its competitors) but was faced with the challenge of differentiating its feature product to independent theater owners. As a result, Carl Laemmle
