Pine-Thomas Productions was a prolific B-picture unit of Paramount Pictures from 1940–1957, producing 81 films. Co-producers William H. Pine (February 15, 1896 – April 29, 1955) and William C. Thomas (August 11, 1903 – April 2, 1984) were known as the "Dollar Bills" because none of their economically made films ever lost money.[1][2]

In 1957 Pine-Thomas moved from Paramount to United Artists[3] and continued with their films.[4] Thomas produced three more films in the late 1970s.
