Family Films was founded by film entrepreneur SamHersh in 1946 to capitalize on an evolving market forlow-budget films for the entire family. Hersh was not aChristian when he first launched Family Films, but wasJewish. To avoid his peers learning that he was producingreligious films, he identified himself in the credits thefirst couple of years as 'S. Hershey' rather than Sam Hersh.Eventually Hersh became a believer and continued producingfilms with strong Christian values under his real name.
