Gotham Pictures Company

Gotham Pictures Company was an American movie production business established in San Antonio in 1916 during the silent film era.[1] Marshall W. Taggart was the company's president. Property in Hot Wells, Texas near San Antonio was planned as an area to build a studio for productions. The company transitioned into the sound era and under its then president Sam Sax joined with RCA Photophone to film The Girl from the Argentine. Gotham worked with Bristolphone to wire theaters in 1928.[2]

Along with Rayart, Gotham was one of the significant independent film industry production houses that operated as Hollywood's dominance was still emerging. Tiffany-Stahl was another independent studio.[3]
