Pacific Title Archives is an American company founded in 1919 by Leon Schlesinger under the name "Pacific Title And Art," where most of his business was producing title cards for silent films. As talking pictures ("talkies") gained popularity in 1929 and 1930, Schlesinger looked for ways to capitalize on the new technology and stay in business, and as a result the firm moved into general film editing and post-production work. Schlesinger sold Pacific Title in 1935 to Lawrence Glickman so Schlesinger could concentrate on his growing animation studio.[1] Glickman added film storage and archiving to its services in 1935.[2]

The company was sold in 2007 for US$23 million,[3] after which it "ran into hard times." The 90-year-old company went into receivership and was expected to be liquidated.[4]
