Among the Rugged Peaks Carla Laemmle by Rick Atkins

Carl Laemmle, a nickelodeon-era film exhibitor, got into producing movies in 1909, soon featuring stars such as Mary Pickford. His Independent Moving Pictures (IMP) incorporated with several other pioneering companies to form Universal Film Manufacturing Company, with Laemmle as President. Being boss enabled him to bring many family members in with jobs. His niece, Carla, often played small roles in such classics as The Phantom of the Opera (1925) starring Lon Chaney, and Dracula (1931) starring Bela Lugosi, as well as many others.
