Warner Bros. was born from a gamble. A gamble four ambitious brothers made with the world that audiences would gravitate to the ‘talkies’— motion pictures that synced speech with sound.

As with most landmark innovations, early attempts proved wildly unsuccessful. But on October 6th 1927, Warner Bros. released The Jazz Singer and changed entertainment forever.

The Brothers Warner—Albert, Sam, Jack and Harry—often risked everything they had for what they believed in.


It’s a trait that Cass Warner Sperling, Harry Warner’s granddaughter, feels is responsible for all success the studio has enjoyed since that historic premiere.


“They were pioneers. They were big risk takers and innovators and many times gambled everything on their goals and dreams.”
