Howard Hughes and RKO Studios

Hughes long-lasting impact was most prominently felt after he purchased one of the 5 major productions studios RKO.  It was here that Hughes toppled the studio system, and leveled the playing field for independent film producers.  It was also during this time that Hughes championed the use of controversy to inflate ticket sales, ruining Hollywood careers in the process!
