Sigmund Lubin was considered the nation's first movie mogul and one of the leaders of the early film industry. Lubin was a member of the then-famous V.L.S.E. group which combined the Vitagraph, Lubin, Selig and Essanay companies.

His 1910 film "Where the Road Divides" was located by archivists in the early 1980s during a push to preserve early film history. Before getting involved in Hollywood, Lubin had earned millions manufacturing plows.
