Universal Pictures is an American film production and distribution company. It is currently the primary motion picture arm of the larger Universal Studios. Universal was founded by former clothing store manager Carl Laemmle, Sr. Universal began as the Yankee Film Company in 1909, then evolved into the Independent Moving Picture Company and finally became known as the Universal Film Manufacturing Company in 1912. Laemmle brought many of his own family members in to work at the studio and by the late 1920s, he handed the reigns of the company over to his son, Carl Laemmle, Jr..
