Film Classics

Film Classics was an American film distributor active between 1943 and 1951.[1] Established by Irvin Shapiro the company initially concentrated on re-releases of earlier hits by other studios, but began to handle new independent productions of a generally low-budget nature.

In 1950 a proposed merger with another distributor Eagle-Lion Films fell through.
