The U.S. has a deep history of Masonic involvement that many people are simply unaware of.
For example, the United States of America with its 13 original colonies was essentially founded by the Freemasons. The first president of the country, George Washington was a Freemason who had sworn on a Masonic Bible, and 13 masons had signed the US Constitution.
Our history books do not mention these facts, and our history teachers seem to be just as clueless as everyone else when it comes the subject of Freemasonry’s involvement in helping shape what 33rd degree Freemason Manly P. Hall had called, “The Secret Destiny of America.”
In this article I would like to briefly explain who the true founders of Hollywood were. Many people seem to think that the Jews were the founders of Hollywood, but I disagree. I believe it was the Freemasons, and the information below will prove it.
The facts are that some of the first and largest movie studios were in fact created by Masons. All of these same major film studios are still operating to this very day. Yes, some of them were Jews or from a Jewish background, but all of them were high level Freemasons.
Here is a small list of the Masons I have researched to be connected with the foundation of the Hollywood movie industry. There are probably a lot more, but only some of these names are published.
Jack Warner who founded the Warner Brothers was a Mason with the Mount Olive Lodge No. 506, Los Angeles, California.
Louis B. Mayer was a film producer who merged to form Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM), and was a member of the St. Cecile Lodge No. 568, New York, New York.
Darryl F. Zanuck was the co-founder of 20th Century Productions, and a Mason at the same lodge as Jack Warner at the Mount Olive Lodge No. 506, Los Angeles, California. He played a major part in the Hollywood studio system as one of its longest survivors. He earned three Academy Awards during his tenure.
Carl Laemmle was the founder of Universal Studios and a Freemason.
Walt Disney founded Walt Disney Studios and was Mason. He was a 33 Degree Freemason of the Scottish Rite.
Cecil B. deMille was a Hollywood movie director, and Mason with the Prince of Orange Lodge No. 16, New York. His film The Squaw Man was the first major film to be made in Hollywood.
