AMERICAN MUTOSCOPE & BIOGRAPH CO.

American Mutoscope and Biograph Company (1895-1917)

“Originally named the American Mutoscope Company, the principal competitor to the Edison Manufacturing Company was established to produce films for their peepshow machine, the Mutoscope. They found that films projected in their large 68mm film format were more popular, and showed them exclusively on their own machines at Keith-Albee’s and prominent family oriented variety theaters. In 1897, Biograph formed affiliated branches in England and several European countries. After 1903, they sold films, of which D.W. Griffith directed hundreds between 1908 and 1913.” –Paul Spehr
