The company started producing successful movies from the outset. It built a new studio at its current location in 1926 and moved in a year later. Over the coming years, the studio began to grow. It worked with directors such as Alfred Hitchcock and actors such as Mae West and Bing Crosby. The company produced many big budget films in the 1950s like the Ten Commandments. In the early 1970s, it produced the first movie of The Godfather series. More recent movies include The Italian Job, the Iron Man series, and Interstellar.
TV production began in the mid-1960s and proved to be another successful move. Shows such as the Odd Couple and Star Trek were big hits, as were later ones like Cheers in the 1980s and Frasier in the 1990s.
