The Fox Film Corporation was founded by William Fox (1879 - 1952) in 1915 and was very successful in the industry until he Crash of 1929, when he lost control of the company in 1930, during a hostile takeover, ultimately resulting in a merger with the Twentieth Century Pictures to form 20th Century Fox in 1935. One of the last films produced by Fox at Fox was The Big Trail (1930) directed by Raoul Walsh, starring John Wayne in his first leading role and the first domestic widescreen movie.
