Founded in 1935 by executive Herbert J. Yates, independent studio Republic Pictures is fondly remembered today for producing westerns, serials and B-movies. The studio also launched the careers of such future cowboy icons as John Wayne, Gene Autry and Roy Rogers. In the 1940s and 1950s, the company moved into prestige pictures with the release of MACBETH (1948), THE RED PONY (1949), THE QUIET MAN (1952) and JOHNNY GUITAR (1954), before disbanding in 1959.
