Charlie Chaplin, after signing his $1 million (approx 13 million in 2014) contract with “First National” built his own studio, breaking ground in Autumn 1917, fully completed in 1919.
Studio still stands today, though called ” Jim Henson Studios” - 1416 N. La Brea Avenue, Hollywood, Los Angeles, California
In February 1969, Chaplin Studios were designated as a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument. The famous 1985 song/video “We Are the World” was recorded there - at that time owned by Music Moguls Herp Albert & Jerry Moss (A&M Records)
All of his films from “A Dog’s Life” 1918 - “Limelight” 1952 were produced there.
