Background: Seven Arts Productions was a production company founded in 1957 by Ray Stark and Eliot Hyman (the latter who started Associated Artists Productions (a.a.p.) in 1953) producing films for other studios such as: The Misfits for United Artists, Gigot for 20th Century Fox, Lolita for MGM, and Is Paris Burning? for Paramount. During the years, the company joined up with the horror production company Hammer Film Productions. In 1967, Seven Arts acquired Warner Bros. Pictures from Jack Warner for $32 million and merged with it forming "Warner Bros.-Seven Arts". Seven Arts Productions is not to be confused with
Carolco/New Line's "Seven Arts Pictures", UK's "Seven Arts Entertainment", or CanWest's "Seven Arts International".
