  • 1919

    AB Svensk Filmindustri was founded after the merger between film studios Svenska Biografteatern AB and Filmindustri AB Skandia. Ivar Kreuger and construction company Kreuger & Toll become the majority owners.

  • 1920

    SF Studios opened its studio lot Filmstaden in Råsunda, outside of Stockholm, which was SF Studios’ headquarters until the late 1960s. Many masterpieces of Swedish silent cinema were produced here such as SF Studios’ Erotikon (1920), The Phantom Carriage (Körkarlen, 1921) and The Legend of Gösta Berling (Gösta Berlings saga, 1924).

  • 1923

    Greta Gustafsson was contracted by SF Studios to star as Elisabeth Dohna in Mauritz Stiller’s adaptation of Selma Lagerlöf’s novel The Legend of Gösta Berling. When the film was released in 1924, Gustafsson changed her surname to Garbo and the rest is history!
