Sono Art-World Wide Pictures was an American film distribution and production company that operated from 1927 to 1933.[1] Their first feature film was The Rainbow Man (1929), while one of their most prominent was The Great Gabbo (1929) starring Erich von Stroheim and directed by James Cruze for James Cruze Productions, Inc.[2] One of the last films distributed by the company was A Study in Scarlet (1933) starring Reginald Owen as Sherlock Holmes.

Sono Art was also the original U.S. distributor for four Alfred Hitchcock films, Downhill (1927), Easy Virtue (1928), The Manxman (1929), and Blackmail (1929), as well as the British Anna May Wong vehicle Piccadilly (1929).


In 1933, Sono-Art merged with Rayart Pictures to form Monogram Pictures. The original Monogram (including its library) merged into Republic Pictures in 1935; that library is now owned by Paramount Pictures (through Republic), although all Sono Art-World Wide productions have fallen into the public domain.
