GUGGENHEIM PRODUCTIONS INC
"It's presumptuous to think you leave a legacy at all.
In 1954, Charles Guggenheim, a twenty-nine-year-old television producer and director, founded his own small film production studio in St. Louis, Missouri. Nearly fifty years later, Guggenheim Productions, Inc., is now located in Washington, DC, and has completed more than 500 titles. Our collection ranges from full-length feature films to campaign biographies, political spots, industrials and more than one hundred social, political, and historical documentaries. Guggenheim has received numerous honors including a Peabody, four Academy Awards and a historic record of twelve Academy Award nominations.
Charles' daughter Grace came to work with him in 1986 and has produced more than twenty of Guggenheim Productions' most current titles. She produced and managed the publicity campaign for their last project, Berga: Soldiers of Another War, which had its national broadcast debut on May 28th 2003 on PBS (check your local listings for future air dates).
In addition to continuing to make documentaries, the company is broadening the aftermarket and availability of its current films. Considering the widespread crisis in American education today, our intent is to make available to the public as many film titles from the collection as possible. Our primary mission is to widen their distribution to educators and museums around the world to inspire and celebrate our American heritage. Our goal and belief is that through a clearer understanding of our American journey we can make the world a better place.
