This year marks the 100th anniversary of the storied Paramount Pictures, the only studio to still call Hollywood (the L.A. neighborhood, not the state of mind) its home. Founded in 1912 as the Famous Players Film Company, it more than lived up to its billing, claiming silent greats such as Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, Gloria Swanson, and Rudolph Valentino, not to mention Cecil B. DeMille, who made all his biblical epics for the studio. To celebrate its 100th birthday, Paramount Pictures assembled 116 of the greatest talents ever to work at the studio—including Meryl Streep, Kirk Douglas, Ernest Borgnine, Jack Nicholson, Jane Fonda, and many, many more. An interactive version of the picture can be found on the Vanity Fair website and in the image library.
