Ivan Abramson (1869 – September 15, 1934) was a director of American silent films in the 1910s and 1920s.[1]

Abramson emigrated to the United States from Russia in the 1880s and soon became involved in the Jewish newspaper field. In 1905, he founded an opera company. In 1914, he founded Ivan Film Productions to produce silent films, with the Sins of the Parents as his first release. In 1917, after success with pictures including One Law for Both and Enlighten Thy Daughter, he partnered with William Randolph Hearst to form the Graphic Film Corporation (GFC).[2]

Abramson's films are often melodramas with titillating titles such as Forbidden Fruit (1915) and A Child for Sale (1920), and sexual hygiene films such as The Sex Lure (1916) and Enlighten Thy Daughter (1917).[3][4] The GFC ended with the 1919 release of The Echo of Youth.

In 1923, Abramson and Sidney M. Goldin directed East and West, filmed in Austria and starring Molly Picon, and which had English and Yiddish subtitles.[1]

Abramson died on September 15, 1934, in New York's Mount Sinai Hospital, survived by his wife Liza Einhorn.[5][6]
