When the Monogram logo appeared on the screen,everyone knew they were in for a good bit of action and adventure. Monogram was founded by W. Ray Johnston in the
early 1930's.They produced many low budget features from 1930 until 1935.At this time Trem Carr was in charge of production.Another independent producer,Paul Malvern,also released his Lone Star western productions
through Monogram.Monogram was fortunate to have a good father and son combination of Robert N. Bradbury, writer and director,and Bob Steele,cowboy actor, on their roster.Bradbury scripted almost all of Monogram's and
Lone Star's early western output.During this early Monogram period they also produced action melodramas,classics and mysteries.
