From this, Capra did more film work, his chemistry degree long forgotten. Consider this: Capra had absolutely no training or education in film work, and he made some of the greatest films in cinema history.

history. Of course, he was not very different from most of the film-makers of the pioneer generation, since film school didn't really exist and [[IndyPloy everything was being made up as they went along]].

In the mid-1940s, Capra attempted to establish himself as an independent filmmaker by forming his own film company, Liberty Films, in partnership with fellow directors Creator/WilliamWyler and George Stevens. The only two films produced by Liberty Films were ''Film/ItsAWonderfulLife'' and ''Stete of the Union'', neither of which was a success ([[VindicatedByCable at the time]]). The company was sold in 1947, before its latter film was released, to Creator/{{Paramount}}, an event which Capra claimed in his memoirs started "the more or less continuous downward slide of Hollywood's artistic and economic fortunes."
