Rain Man Production Studio

Production Studio

United Artists produced the film with The Guber-Peters Company, with assists from Star Partners II Ltd. and Mirage Entertainment.

United Artists is kind of like a studio chameleon—it keeps changing as the times change, which makes it kind of hard to talk about a particular "brand" for its films. It was, however, founded by directors and actors (hello, Charlie Chaplin, D.W. Griffiths, Douglas Fairbanks, and Mary Pickford), which is kinda cool. Its turbulent history includes releasing the James bond films and other big-deal movies. Oh, and Tom Cruise had a hand in trying to restart it after it had fallen on hard times (source).

That said, United has been around forever, and it remains associated with MGM (one of the true lions of the old classical film studios), so it's fair to say it's still kinda sorta connected with that legacy and "classical" tradition of, you know, making hit movies (comedies, dramas… you name it).
