Noted producer Frank King spent much of his career closely associated with his brothers Maurice and Herman as part of King Brothers Productions. The three siblings got their start in 1941 manufacturing film projectors. They began making films around 1942. Among their most memorable films are Suspense (1946) and Carnival Story (1954). Their film The Brave One (1956) earned Dalton Trumbo (who used the penname Robert Rich) a Best Screenplay Oscar.
