'From the ’30s through the ’50s, the different studio logos at the head of every picture carried their own associations and expectations,' said Scorsese. 'And for me, the name Republic over the eagle on the mountain peak meant something special. Republic Pictures was what was known as a "poverty row" studio, but what their pictures lacked in resources and prestige they made up for in inventiveness, surprise, and, in certain cases, true innovation. Among the many "B" pictures produced at Republic in the studio’s heyday, there are so many titles that have been overlooked or forgotten; waiting for decades to be seen again.'"—MoMA
